Social Sustainability

Our People and Communities

Our commitments as an employer, business partner and neighbor continue to grow and evolve along with our operational excellence and high-performing culture of continuous improvement. To us, social sustainability is operating with a sense of purpose and putting more back into society than we take out.

As a company that connects complex machines with people and their environment, we are in a unique position to apply our innovative solutions and expertise to address challenges like climate change, urbanization and food instability. Our 2020 sustainability targets – targets we set five years ago and are on track to achieve – leverage our knowledge, resources and innovations to help people and communities respond to the impacts of our changing world. We have improved accessibility to wellness programs for our employees; strengthened our employee engagement score; created diverse slates of candidates; expanded competency in energy and resource efficiency; inspired STEM education; addressed nutrition and food waste reduction and supported housing and shelter needs.

Our employees, winning culture and commitment to human rights are the foundation of our company. Investing in training and development while acting to promote diversity and inclusion drives innovations that deliver long-term value for our stakeholders. We achieve measurable progress by leveraging the power of our business and our people through strategic philanthropy and a culture of volunteerism to help people and communities respond to the impacts of our changing world.

Every day at Ingersoll Rand, we think bigger and act bolder to align our investments with the greatest societal needs that reflect the diversity of our people, markets and lines of business. The progress and data reported in our 2018 ESG Report are evidence that by challenging ourselves to help solve these global challenges, we are doing the right thing for our communities, the environment and our business.
