Destination IAA = Destination Zero for Cummins
COLUMBUS, INDIANA – Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will showcase its commitment to decarbonization at the industry’s largest tradeshow in Hannover, Germany this September. Destination Zero™ is the company’s strategy to go further, faster to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) and air quality impacts of its products and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
“With Destination Zero, we are working to reduce emissions today, advancing engine-based solutions and investing in the right technologies at the right time with a deep understanding of our customers as we work to decarbonize our industry in a way that is best for all stakeholders,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have deep knowledge of our end markets and applications, each of which has unique technical, performance and service demands. We know how to adapt existing and new technologies into products that meet our customers’ needs, are economical and further the transition to zero-emissions solutions.”
Cummins is pursuing a dual-path approach, meaning the company is reducing emissions from internal combustion engines while simultaneously investing in new, zero-emissions products. The company spends approximately $1billion per year on research and development of future technologies.
Cummins’ approach lowers emissions today; incorporates well-to-wheels emissions reductions by matching technology readiness with infrastructure readiness; drives wide-scale adoption due to affordability by using the right technology at the right time; and will achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Cummins’ Destination Zero™ strategy will be demonstrated at IAA through.
