The mining and construction manufacturer released its annual Year in Review and Sustainability Report, detailing how Caterpillar navigated a year of difficult economic conditions to meet its consumers’ challenges.

In the second part of the report, “What We’ve Built, What We’re Solving,” Caterpillar recounts its sustainability efforts, which include an increased investment in alternative and renewable energy and drawing attention to the issue of natural ecosystem restoration. The company also details its strong safety record.

"World population growth will continue to drive increased demand for energy, commodities, infrastructure and transportation – all of which require the power, endurance and sophistication of Cat® equipment," said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO, Doug Oberhelman, in the release.
