As a manufacturer of heavy equipment, some of Caterpillar’s operations are extremely energy-intensive. But even in our most energy-dense environments, Caterpillar employees have found ways to implement innovative energy systems that reduce our energy costs as well as our environmental impacts.

Operational energy intensity decreased 24 percent from 2006 to 2015. In addition, our absolute energy consumption decreased 10 percent from 2014 to 2015. This progress represents a continued commitment to investment in more energy-efficient equipment and processes, as well as the implementation of best practices at our facilities around the world.
