As we continue to build a stronger, more resilient Wabtec that continues to lead the global freight and transit rail markets, we are focused on driving ongoing safety, innovation, efficiency, reliability, productivity, and, importantly, sustainability. At Wabtec, we know that building a comprehensive sustainability program is critical not only to our company’s future success, but to the future success of our stakeholders, partners and communities in which we operate.
Over the past several years, Wabtec has demonstrated a commitment to sustainable solutions that protect the planet and improve communities. This includes delivering reliable, clean and innovative transportation products that reduce fuel consumption, lower emissions and improve productivity. We are continuously at work to improve the sustainability of our products, optimize and ultimately reduce our energy consumption, and increase our use of green materials. But we are committed to doing more. Working together with all our stakeholders – customers, employees, investors, and others – it’s time for us to push forward with a bolder focus and renewed determination on managing Wabtec’s environmental impact.
Of course, the notion of corporate sustainability does not only encompass the environment. As we continue to make our sustainability program increasingly comprehensive, an approach to sustainability that encompasses a diverse set of initiatives will be key to ensuring Wabtec remains a competitive force in our industry and is equipped to deal with the new challenges of a rapidly changing world. This includes ensuring and owning our responsibility throughout the value chain; focusing on human resources and employee well-being; prioritizing occupational safety; forging relationships with our stakeholders anchored in integrity, ethics, and trust; and, of course, committing ourselves to an environmental impact program that will allow us to continue to deliver for our customers and shareholders for decades to come.
