“Atlas Copco has always incorporated sustainability initiatives into global business and manufacturing practices because it creates value for our customers and shareholders and makes good business sense,” said Jim Levitt, president, Atlas Copco North America LLC. “Being included in the Global 100 list for the eighth time shows that our social and environmental efforts really do make a difference.”

Atlas Copco sustainability initiatives, both globally and in the U.S., include:

  • Boosting customer energy-efficiency by at least 20 percent between 2010 and 2020
  • Decreasing CO2 emissions
  • Working actively to eliminate corruption
  • Promoting access to clean drinking water in countries in need

In addition, the Atlas Copco Group invested approximately $330 million in 2012 into research and development to ensure that products remain at the leading edge of energy efficiency, safety and ergonomics.
