“Fundamentally, we excel where global megatrends and sustainability intersect with our innovation and capabilities. Today, 15% of the world’s carbon emissions (CO2e) come from heating and cooling buildings, and another 8% comes from global food loss. And these numbers are growing.
We are continually innovating to bend the curve on global warming. By 2030, we will reduce our customer’s carbon emissions (CO2e) by 1 gigaton by changing the way the world heats and cools buildings and moves refrigerated food, medicines and other perishables.”
— Michael W. Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer
Here are three ways we’re making the right changes.
We’re reducing one gigaton of carbon emissions (CO2e) from our customers’ footprint by 2030. Join us
We’re scaling technology, innovation and sustainability strategies, and rethinking our supply chain to achieve carbon neutral operations.
