As a technology company committed to meeting the world’s sustainability challenges head-on, Cummins’s mission is to power a greener, more prosperous world – we call this Destination Zero. Our broad portfolio of power solutions is innovative, dependable, and helps customers around the world improve their efficiency and environmental credentials. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the rail industry.
Rail has a long history of underpinning economic growth. It transforms lives, businesses and communities. It has the potential to support responsible consumption and a circular economy in the face of increasing urbanisation and population growth.
Rail reduces road congestion and carries more customers and freight using less energy and producing fewer emissions than most other modes of transport. Cummins recognises the potential of developing increasingly sustainable, more resilient and safer railways for everyone.
Our vision, experience and technical expertise help us look beyond the obvious and bring critical thinking to all sustainability challenges. Many companies are pursuing alternative power as a potential answer to the world’s climate goals, and Cummins is leading the charge in battery, fuel cell and hydrogen production technologies. In fact, we’re way ahead of the curve.
