Making a Difference

We believe in commitment—the power of responsibility. As individuals and as a company, we contribute significant time and resources to promoting the health, welfare and economic stability of our communities.

From the work of the Caterpillar Foundation to individual employee efforts, Caterpillar people believe in giving back to our communities. Individually and collectively we make meaningful commitments—first to each other, and then to those with whom we live and work.

We support environmental responsibility through sustainable development; leveraging technology and innovation to increase efficiency and productivity with less impact on the environment and helping our customers do the same. We also lead industry and community initiatives that share our commitment to making sustainable process possible here in the UK and around the world.

Each UK location is individually engaged in a wide variety of ways. In addition to the work of the Caterpillar Foundation, we have developed significant funding partnerships with leading UK organizations such as the Prince's Trust promoting youth opportunities, the Wildlife Trust caring for the environment, and three UK universities supporting engineering undergraduates. These long-term partnerships are very important to Caterpillar, its management and employees.
