These are unprecedented times, but at Carrier we remain committed to supporting our people, our customers and our communities – and that means delivering safe and healthy environments when they’re needed most. We’re proud to continue to safely provide critical products and services to our global customers, including those that maintain indoor air quality, transport the world’s perishable food and medical supply and keep people protected from smoke and fire. At the same, we’re taking a number of steps to support and protect our employees and our communities.
The world has changed dramatically in 2020, and that means we have, too. COVID-19 has affected the way we work across every facet of our business, driving enhanced health and safety measures to ensure we can continue to provide the essential products and services our customers and the world need – while also working to keep each other safe.
The resources and actions outlined here are just some of the ways we’re working to provide the healthy environments we all need. And like all good things, they will continue to evolve as we learn together how to navigate and strengthen our new environments.
One thing that won’t change, though: our commitment to keeping our employees and our customers safe. Whether it’s through the implementation of thermal screening; guidance and protocols around face coverings; enhanced cleaning and sanitization measures; or rapid innovation to deliver new healthy building solutions, we all have a role to play in protecting each other and our workplaces.
Thanks for your support. We are strong and resilient, and we will get through this together.
-Dave Gitlin, President & CEO
Protecting Our People
We continue to closely monitor the global impact of COVID-19, and the precautionary measures we are taking are aligned with the latest information and global guidance. The health, safety and well-being of our employees is of the utmost importance and is driving the actions we’re taking. The actions include limiting travel, deploying an enhanced hygiene program across our global operations, establishing clear guidelines for employees who might feel ill and restricting access to our facilities.
Serving Our Customers
Our essential products and services are critical to providing the healthy environments that are more important now than ever before. From rapid innovation to address real-time needs to implementing new processes and protocols to ensure uninterrupted response, we're here for our customers.
Supporting Our Communities
Carrier realizes that some of the organizations that are most hard-hit from COVID-19 are nonprofit organizations that have seen a rapid decline in the number of volunteers and donations. To quickly respond, Carrier worked closely with our nonprofit community partners to understand their immediate needs and how we can help.
Building a Better, Healthier Future
In addition to the work we are doing to help weather the pandemic now, we are always looking to the future of healthier buildings. From partnering with leading experts to study the effects of improving indoor environmental quality on cognitive function to our own investment in R&D into solutions that improve operational efficiency and make buildings healthier.
