CRH and Caterpillar (CAT) have teamed up to work on electric off-road vehicles and charging solutions.

The goal is to speed up the use of Caterpillar’s battery-powered trucks, ranging from 70 to 100 tonnes, with CRH testing them at their sites in North America.

As the top aggregates producer in North America, CRH is the first in the building materials industry to sign on to Caterpillar's electrification plan. This collaboration aims to introduce eco-friendly equipment into CRH's operations while giving Caterpillar practical insights into safety, performance, and compliance in the aggregates sector.

Switching to electric vehicles is a crucial part of CRH's plan to cut carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and become a net-zero business by 2050.

By partnering with Caterpillar, CRH continues its work with Shell and Volvo, pushing forward the use of sustainable equipment in the building materials industry.
