Cummins Inc. and Schneider Electric commit to improving global communities

Cummins Inc. and Schneider Electric recently signed a joint declaration of corporate responsibility that will partner the two companies in community improvement projects around the world.

“This partnership will improve how Cummins provides resources and engages employees in corporate responsibility projects around the globe,” Mark Levett, vice president of corporate responsibility and CEO of the Cummins Foundation, said. “Working together, Cummins and Schneider Electric can use our global footprint, and the strength of our employee’s skills, to drive even greater change in our communities.”

Both of the companies show a lengthy history in improving communities where they work. This commitment will be carried on through the new responsibility partnership. The partnership will strengthen how the two organizations encourage technical education, address environmental challenges and back equal opportunities.

“We share a belief with Cummins that as organizations with expertise and scale, we have a responsibility to actively support efforts to improve our communities and our world,” Francois Milioni, director of Schneider Electric Training Program “Access to Energy,” said. “By joining forces to further animate this belief, we will be able to do more collectively than we could individually and increase the positive impacts we can make for our society.”

Representatives from both companies signed the declaration on July 30, 2015.
