Caterpillar Inc. announced it has signed an electrification strategic agreement.

The agreement was signed with CRH, a provider of building materials solutions, to advance the deployment of Caterpillar's zero-exhaust emissions solutions. 

The agreement will accelerate the deployment of Caterpillar's 70 to 100-ton-class battery electric off-highway trucks and charging solutions at a CRH site in North America. 

Through the agreement, CRH will participate in Caterpillar's Early Learner program for battery electric off-highway trucks, testing and validating the units in real-world applications. 

"We are pleased to work with CRH, as our first aggregates industry customer, to expand our electrification solutions beyond mining. When it comes to sustainability, the quarry and aggregates industry requires diverse solutions. Our collaboration with CRH is an exciting opportunity to learn together and gain valuable insights into how our products can best support CRH's long-term objectives to decarbonize its operations," said Caterpillar Resource Industries Group President Denise Johnson in a statement.

The collaboration supports CRH's climate-related objective of reducing GHG emissions from its operations by utilizing more sustainable equipment. CRH has set a target to deliver a 30% reduction in absolute carbon emissions by 2030 (from a 2021 base year) and has a goal to be a net-zero business by 2050.
