This solution helps reduce engine NOx emissions to below government regulated standards anywhere in the world and is already running successfully in many engines with multiple customers in the United States, the company said.
“We are enthusiastic about our responsibility to be a good corporate citizen,” said John Sargent, Cooper’s CEO. “Our corporate culture embraces high standards in ethics, safety, quality, social responsibility, compliance and the environment.”
In addition to its environmental initiatives, Cooper proactively invests in comprehensive social programs across its global operations. The company is committed to the health and safety of its employees with its safety-first, zero injury culture, as well as health and wellness programs at facilities around the world, it said.
Cooper recognizes that diversity of thought, background and experience is a business asset, and has implemented hiring practices and training programs to further enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the organization.
