06/12/2014 | 02:31pm US/Eastern

CEO remarks on breadth of Caterpillar remanufacturing at annual shareholder meeting

SOURCE: Caterpillar


Caterpillar US and overseas remanufacturing facilities have returned more than 500,000 tons of materials - the weight of the Empire State Building, plus another 135,000 tons. Remanufacturing efforts at Caterpillar have also eliminated 1 million tons of greenhouse gas from the atmosphere.

In his remarks at the annual shareholder meeting, CEO Doug Oberhelman also illustrated sustainability as a three-legged stool comprised of economic, environmental and social components. These components work in tandem to keep the system of sustainability in balance.

"Caterpillar has been on this sustainability journey for decades and won't ever stop. We will continue to build, develop and power the world, and make sustainable progress possible."
