Cummins honored for gains in energy management

Cummins has received an energy management award.

The Columbus-based engine manufacturer was named the winner of the 2016 Award of Excellence in Energy Management from the Clean Energy Ministerial, a high-level global forum that promotes policies and programs to advance clean energy. Katie Zarich, Cummins’ Manager of External Communications, says that CEM energy ministers presented this award to company officials on Thursday at the annual CEM meeting in San Francisco.

Company officials say that Cummins was one of only three organizations worldwide to be recognized for this honor by an independent panel of international experts.

“To meet the world’s energy, environmental and economic challenges, we must improve how we manage energy on a global scale,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at Cummins Inc. She continued, “Cummins is committed to energy efficiency in our facilities and throughout our supply chain as well as through our product innovations. We are honored to join the Energy Management Campaign because we believe structured energy management and aggressive goals are key to making progress in global energy efficiency.”
