Indiana engine manufacturer Cummins announced its new climate goals on Friday. The company plans to get down to zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Transportation makes up almost 30 percent of all U.S. emissions that contribute to climate change.
In order to achieve its 2050 goal, Cummins has several benchmarks for the next decade — including cutting emissions at its facilities in half, creating 25 percent less waste, and recycling all plastic packaging.
CEO Tom Linebarger says though the company is working to develop more sustainable technology, it’s too expensive right now and there isn’t enough infrastructure to support it.
