Building Modern and Sustainable Cities

Caterpillar plays a central role in ensuring urban dwellers are protected against environmental threats

Published: 21 October 2021

As the month of Urban October comes to an end, we are happy to continue working with Caterpillar in their long-standing commitment to help their customers build better cities and living spaces through products and services that help fulfill society’s basic needs – such as shelter, clean water, education, and reliable energy – in a sustainable way. As the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines, and diesel-electric locomotives, Caterpillar is embracing its stature to push forward the agenda of sustainability.

Urban liveability is crucial as cities continue to host more people over time. As the supplier of critical machinery needed in construction and town planning, Caterpillar plays a central role in ensuring urban dwellers are protected against environmental threats. Caterpillar’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while helping its customers meet their climate-related objectives is something our network members need to continue learning about.

At AL for Infrastructure, our priority of championing innovative and sustainable infrastructure development remains clear. Our sector and Caterpillar are continuing to collaborate at a time when Caterpillar is increasingly seeking to support their customers and other sector players at a time when everyone is focusing on energy transition to a lower-carbon future. Caterpillar is doing that through investments in new products, technologies, and services and the AL for Infrastructure collaboration is exposing our community of leaders to these technologies and business practices through multiple job and internship placements.

The employment and internship opportunities Caterpillar offers to our network not only cements the business as a leading contributor in the critical skills development space but significantly contributes to our underlying priority to champion the growth of the continent. Specifically, these opportunities are helping our community members to collaborate in the workplace at a global level, thereby adding new dimensions to how they see and solve local problems.
