Seeking to refine its corporate sustainability program, Caterpillar engaged Susan Graff and her project team to perform a strategic assessment and benchmarking study. Graff’s team used the Sustainability Scorecard™ to evaluate and compare Caterpillar to 28 high performing companies in industries including logistics, transportation, heavy equipment manufacture and finance. The results provided Caterpillar with an understanding of how they measured up to best practices on environmental, social and human capital dimensions. Combined with feedback from multi-stakeholder consultation, this assessment provided the foundation for the company’s integrated sustainability strategy and inaugural external sustainability report.
