Cummins Inc. announced April 15 that it has released its fifth annual Sustainability Report on the company website, and that a print version of the report will be available in May.

Cummins says the report was prepared following the spirit of guidelines established by the Global Reporting Initiative. The aim of the GRI is to develop a consistent way for companies around the world to voluntarily report on the economic, environmental and social components of their business.
