We need everyone working together to address climate change, and we are pleased to partner with our customers in their efforts to improve the environmental and economic sustainability of their operations,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO of Cummins, Inc. “I look forward to sharing more about Destination Zero with our customers at ACT Expo.”
Cummins is helping customers reduce their carbon footprint today as the transition to cleaner transportation solutions accelerates globally and the necessary infrastructure is established to support this transformation.
“We are seeing an across-the-board realignment toward clean commercial transportation, and as a long-standing market leader, Cummins is one of the voices that informs and drives forward our direction and progress,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), the producers of ACT Expo. “We are excited to get an update on how Cummins’ path to ultra-low carbon technology and zero emissions is shaping its product roadmap today and over the next several decades.”
