Being a leader means pushing ahead through difficult challenges. The “USA Today Climate Leader” list is data-driven and recognizes companies’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. This year Caterpillar was named one of America’s Climate Leaders for 2023.
“Caterpillar has a long-standing commitment to sustainability,” states Chief Sustainability Officer Dr. Lou Balmer-Millar. “As we support our customers in their sustainability journey, we remain focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions within our own operations. We appreciate this recognition of our progress.” Caterpillar has had sustainability goals to reduce emissions since 2006, and its 2022 Sustainability Report announced a 33 percent reduction in Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions from 2018. By reducing emissions, Caterpillar is supporting a reduced-carbon future.
