INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allison Transmission recently released its 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report designed to provide transparent data on the company’s environmental performance, social impacts and how these practices are governed.
“The world is undergoing extraordinary change and facing unprecedented challenges. From how we communicate and do business, to how we transport people and goods around the globe, to the challenge of meeting the world’s growing energy needs in a sustainable way while minimizing the impact to the environment,” said David Graziosi, Chairman and CEO of Allison Transmission. “As the commercial vehicle industry continues to evolve, Allison’s mission remains clear. We are committed to Improving the Way the World Works with fuel efficient, reliable and innovative propulsion solutions that deliver the performance, quality and differentiated value proposition our customers have come to expect from the Allison brand.”
Allison is committed to its leadership role in fuel and energy efficient propulsion solutions that support sustainability and environmental initiatives. In recent years, the company has expanded its product lineup to include a broad portfolio of fully electric propulsion solutions. Following the successful launch of the eGen Power 100D™ fully electric axle, Allison introduced two new e-Axle variants in 2021 to further address the wide range of applications and markets Allison serves. The company also made significant investments in infrastructure to support advancements in commercial vehicle technology, including the opening of a cutting-edge Innovation Center and completing upgrades to the state-of-the-art Vehicle Electrification + Environmental Test Center located at its global headquarters in Indianapolis. In addition to developing electric vehicle propulsion technology, Allison continues to invest in increasingly fuel-efficient conventional propulsion solutions for the global on-highway and off-highway end markets. Innovative software features such as FuelSense® 2.0 allow OEMs to further improve fuel consumption by up to 6% and reduce CO2 emissions. Allison’s fully automatic transmissions and software efficiency features are also compatible with alternative combustible fuels, such as natural gas and propane, which enable fleets to use familiar and proven hardware to achieve reduced emissions.
For more than 100 years, as Allison has grown, so has its commitment to being a responsible and compassionate corporate citizen.
