Caterpillar Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for the 12th Consecutive Year

Caterpillar Inc.has been named to the 2012-2013 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). This is the 12th straight year that Caterpillar has been recognized as a sustainability leader in the Industrial Engineering sector.

Launched in 1999, the annual DJSI process involves a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance factors, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, product stewardship, innovation, climate and energy strategy, supply chain and labor practices.

"We are laser focused on our customers, and our customers are focused on sustainability. Our inclusion on the DJSI for the 12th consecutive year confirms that we are making sustainable progress possible," said Doug Oberhelman, Caterpillar chairman and CEO.

"As I talk with customers, they consistently tell me that sustainability is one of their major concerns," continued Oberhelman. "And that's why we strive to provide more sustainable solutions for our customers."

Sustainable Development for Caterpillar means leveraging technology and innovation to increase efficiency and productivity with less impact on the environment and helping customers do the same – enabling their businesses to become more productive by providing products, services and solutions that use resources more efficiently.

Caterpillar's annual sustainability report further explains the company's focus on sustainability. The 2011 Sustainability Report underscores how Caterpillar and its customers play a major role in satisfying the world's increasing demand for reliable energy sources and clean, more efficient energy use. Caterpillar’s sustainability reports can be viewed on the company’s website at
