STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES We design products and offer solutions that enable our customers to operate in safe and sustainable ways. Our solutions lessen the demand on our planet’s limited resources and support the circular economy — by reducing carbon emissions, increasing waste processing, and advancing the reuse of scarce resources — leading to a better planet, better business, and better future. Our objective is Zero Harm, keeping all Terex team members safe at work. Our inclusive culture makes team members of all backgrounds feel welcome and valued, contributing to a team invested in their work, each other, and their communities. We implement sustainable practices at our locations that minimize our impact on the environment because we support a healthier planet for current and future generations. We evaluate our supplier and distribution partners on factors that include their sustainability practices.
