EHS Management System

Our high-performance standards for environmental, health and safety (EHS) encourage going beyond merely complying with EHS laws and regulations. Our EHS assurance manual outlines Caterpillar’s EHS Management System and establishes fundamental requirements for all workplaces globally, including majority-owned subsidiaries and majority-owned joint ventures. Our facilities assess compliance with our requirements annually, and our EHS assessment team reviews those assessments while also conducting more in-depth reviews
of select facilities each year.

Beyond meeting standard expectations, facilities implement their own initiatives to improve safety, decrease energy use and increase productivity. As facilities evaluate potential environmental initiatives, they also consider annual investment required, total anticipated cost savings and average pay-back period. We also invite facilities to report emissions reduction activities through internal awards and recognition processes.
