Canadian Caterpillar dealer Finning has released its first sustainability report. The report communicates the progress Finning has made in safety, environment, people, and community investment.

In 2017, Finning formalized its sustainability focus, embarked on a strategic sustainability journey, and identified key sustainability priorities.

“Sustainability is an integral part of Finning’s purpose, vision and values,” said Scott Thomson, Finning International president and CEO. “I am proud of the progress we’ve made. Nevertheless, this is an ongoing pursuit, and we are determined to continue evolving as we implement our plan with expanded areas of focus.”

Some of the highlights included in Finning’s 2017 sustainability report include:

  • Reduced total recordable injury frequency by 57 percent from 2013 to 2017
  • Achieved zero recordable spills across all regions and locations in 2017
  • Established a GHG measurement protocol to ensure consistent tracking and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions in each of the regions
  • Developed a five-year inclusion and diversity strategy
  • Committed to increasing inclusion and diversity in the business, including aspiring to have female directors comprise not less than 30 percent of the board of directors
  • Focused community investment efforts on promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education by collaborating with strategic non-profit partners.

“Our executive leadership team is committed to leading Finning on our sustainability journey and collaborating with our employees every step of the way,” said Thomson.
