Whether it’s reducing our greenhouse gas impact, leading the phase-out of ozone-depleting refrigerants, or introducing many of the world’s most energy-efficient building solutions, at Carrier, we incorporate sustainability into all that we do. To us, it’s only natural.
Preservation of the environment and protecting our finite natural resources is a central tenet of our business.
We have consistently demonstrated our adherence to these values by creating environmentally sound products that consume less energy and incorporate innovative materials.
We are committed to reducing the greenhouse gas impact of our products through energy efficiency advancements and the refrigerants we use.
Carrier is leading the industry in the phase-out of ozone-depleting refrigerants and has introduced many of the world’s most energy-efficient heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems.
Today Carrier continues to improve the environmental performance of products, services, operations and culture to help achieve a sustainable society and protect the natural environment for generations to come.
Carrier is a company of ideas, committed to research and development, whose founder, Willis Carrier, still inspires the company to reach the next innovative, powerful and marketable idea. As Experts in Efficiency and Environment, we support customers in developing strategic, energy-efficient and custom-engineered building solutions.
Our wide choice of products and systems are designed for years of reliable and trouble-free operation. With reliability and high energy efficiency, our products help reduce our customers’ environmental footprint, and motivates us to design products that consume fewer natural resources and emit lower emissions during manufacture and operation.
Sustainability at Carrier means we can do good for the planet while we do good for our employees, communities, customers and shareowners. The process of integrating sustainability into our business strategy began in 1991 when we first established environment and safety goals. Carrier is owned by UTC’s who’s program has evolved into a comprehensive strategy that includes absolute annual reductions in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Since 1997, we have tripled the size of our business while reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 34 percent and water consumption by 57 percent.
As the world leader in high-technology heating, air conditioning and refrigeration solutions, we are devoted to the advancement and application of the latest technologies. More than 2,000 scientists, engineers and technicians at research and design centres worldwide work to apply the newest technological innovations to the practical needs of millions of customers.
With the increased focus on reducing energy consumption in buildings and related C02 emissions, Carrier continues to improve equipment efficiency and employs an integrated system approach for the highest overall savings.
Air conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems require energy to operate, usually electricity or natural gas. Heating, cooling, refrigeration and air conditioning account for around 40-50% of a typical building’s energy usage. We continually invest in research and development to expand the cost-effective energy-efficient range of our products. We do this because buildings consume about 40% of all energy worldwide.
In nearly every product category, we offer industry-leading, energy-efficient options for our customers.
Whatever type of building and whatever the application, from commercial buildings, office applications through to industrial processes, Carrier offers a wide range of solutions to meet customer needs – integrating comfort, performance and rationalised investment aspects.
Carrier’s energy service operations have implemented more than $2.5 billion in energy savings at more than 2,000 sites, while our green building consulting services have helped the world’s largest companies and organisations, including the Beijing Olympic Village, achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Customers look to Carrier to develop sustainable solutions for refrigerants, especially given climate change considerations. Carrier leads the market in innovation and design of equipment using the latest refrigerants. We keep pace with and anticipate the changes driven by legislation in response to global warming to reduce energy consumption and the environmental impact of our products.
