On this Earth Day and every day at Caterpillar, sustainability is our commitment to building a better world. It is part of who we are and what we do. We recognize progress involves a balance of environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic growth.
Vision, Mission and Strategy
Our vision is a world in which all people’s basic needs – such as shelter, clean water, sanitation, food and reliable power – are fulfilled in a sustainable way and a company that improves the quality of the environment and the communities where we live and work.
Our mission is to enable economic growth through infrastructure and energy development, and to provide solutions that support communities and protect the planet.
Our strategy is to provide work environments, products, services and solutions that make safe, productive and efficient use of resources as we strive to achieve our vision.
