Cummins Technology Pathways for Decarbonization


Decarbonization in response to climate change is one of the fundamental challenges facing the world today. Criteria emissions reduction to improve health outcomes globally is another challenge facing our industry. Cummins has developed a strategy, Destination Zero, to respond to these critical global needs. Cummins is a global leader in technological innovation, with over 100 years of experience in powertrain research and bringing solutions to market. That innovation and agility will be needed to develop future products to combat climate challenges. Innovative power solutions, powertrain diversification, including battery electric and fuel cell technology, along with alternative fuel solutions will all play a part in achieving decarbonization goals.
