Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) was recognized as one of America’s most community-minded companies in The Civic 50 – the first scientific evaluation of companies that best use their time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life where they do business.
Cummins ranked number 25 on the list of Fortune 500 companies that were surveyed by the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) and Points of Light, the nation’s definitive experts on civic engagement. The results were published in the Nov. 9 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek.
“We are pleased to be named to The Civic 50,” said Jean Blackwell, Executive Vice President, Corporate Responsibility of Cummins Inc. and CEO of The Cummins Foundation. “Cummins has a deep commitment to corporate responsibility. Serving and improving the communities in which we live and work is one of Cummins’ core values. Cummins employees serve our communities by volunteering time and talent to help solve community problems and address needs. This is evident by the work of our employees across the globe from Henryville, Indiana to Pune, India to Wuxi, China.”
“The results of The Civic 50 show that what is good for business can also be good for the community,” said Michael Weiser, Chairman of NCoC, and Jackie Norris, executive director of Points of Light Corporate Institute, in a joint statement. “Rather than passively write checks to charities or philanthropies, the top corporations are actively aligning their resources and professional skills with the needs of community partners. The Civic 50 reveals which companies are truly innovative, and we are hopeful that these examples will inspire other companies to make a difference in communities.”The Civic 50 companies were evaluated on several elements, including leadership, measurement and strategy, design, employee civic health, community partnerships, cause alignment and transparency.
