Introduction

We're about high-performance sustainability at Trane Technologies. We set bold goals that challenge what’s possible. Then we take action. We're increasing energy efficiency, reducing waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and improving water management. Our commitment to inclusiveness, diversity and respect leads to engaged employees, customer satisfaction and more opportunities for all. Backed by principled leadership and ethical business practices, tangible results are seen in every facet of our business. That's how we met our 2020 Targets ahead of schedule, and how we're going to relentlessly tackle our next-generation 2030 Sustainability Commitments.
