Sustainability & Social Responsibility


Sustainable Development for Caterpillar means leveraging technology and innovation to increase efficiency and productivity with less impact on the environment and helping our customers do the same – enabling their businesses to become more productive by providing products, services and solutions that use resources more efficiently. Of course, it starts with our own operations, with our customers in mind.

Our mission is to support and serve the organisations that help build a better tomorrow. Every day, we deliver sustainable solutions for our customers, enabling them to succeed and drive positive change around the world. We believe it is also our responsibility to drive positive change by investing purposefully to improve the lives of people in our community through volunteerism, education and financial support.
