Water reduction

In pursuit of circular lifestyles

Cummins’ priorities are reducing greenhouse gas emissions, volatile organic compound emissions, water consumption and waste of all kinds. We are creating a circular lifecycle plan for every part we manufacture to use less, use better and use again. We set ambitious goals, which lead to significant reductions and critical savings in those key areas – our mission? Zero emissions.
