Corporate Responsibility at Cummins

Corporate Responsibility (CR) is one of the six core values of the Company, and states that we ‘serve and improve the communities in which we live’. The CR projects undertaken by Cummins seek to bring about meaningful and sustainable improvements in the communities. Addressing the most fundamental needs of the community, the Company focuses on three  areas - Higher Education, Energy and Environment, and Social Justice and Infrastructure.

Involving senior leadership guidance and ownership, along with dedicated commitment from the employees, high community impact projects are carried out across Cummins locations. The focus areas and their underlying themes are owned and driven by the leaders who set the vision and direction for various initiatives that help deliver impactful and sustainable results for the community. Through continuous interactive engagements, the leaders ensure involvement of all stakeholders throughout the year. Employee participation in these initiatives contribute significantly in scaling up the projects. Employee participation also take place through 

  • Community Involvement Teams (CITs) – These are organized, employee driven teams through which CR initiatives are carried out in the communities in which the Company operates. In India, there are 15 such CITs across Cummins locations.
  • Every Employee Every Community (EEEC) - Under this initiative, every employee is encouraged to spend 4 fully paid working hours on community improvement projects of their choice falling under the three focus areas. Cummins has achieved 100% employee participation and utilization of EEEC hours consecutively for three years.

Partnerships with like-minded corporates, government bodies, NGOs and communities also play a major role in scaling up these projects in the many locations where Cummins is present.

Former CEO J. Irwin Miller, who understood the importance of Corporate Responsibility decades ago, described it as an enlightened form of self-interest. In the words of Mr. J. Irwin Miller, "Business has a very large stake in the quality of the society within which it operates. We flourish only as we are rooted in a society which is healthy, orderly, just and which grants freedom and scope to individuals and their lawful enterprises".
