Cummins Encourages Congress to Pass Reconciliation Bill to Combat Climate Change and Invest in a Decarbonized Future

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today announced its support for the climate change provisions of the reconciliation bill and encourages Congress to pass the legislation. The path to a decarbonized and sustainable future requires the engagement of everyone – government, businesses of all sizes, as well as communities and individuals.

“The decarbonization investments in the reconciliation bill are critical to accelerating the adoption of innovations that can reduce emissions across the United States and set us on a path to a more sustainable future,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO, Cummins Inc.

“Cummins is committing our investment dollars, our global technical resources and our own future to combat climate change and reach zero emissions and decarbonization,” added Linebarger. “Passage of these provisions in the reconciliation bill would make it clear that the U.S. government is also committed to addressing this threat to our country and our planet. Our mission of making people’s lives better by powering a more prosperous world requires a healthier planet, and government and business must work together to address the existential threat of climate change.”

Government investment and incentives in new technologies and the infrastructure necessary to use them are imperative to make the transitions to clean and renewable energies economically viable. Forging a path to zero emissions will strengthen American competitiveness and create good jobs that last while providing cleaner air for all. Cummins specifically supports provisions in the bill for clean commercial vehicle deployment, the infrastructure buildout for battery charging and hydrogen fueling stations, as well as the decarbonization and modernization of the nation’s grid.
