Sustainable Operations

At Carrier, we are committed to protecting what matters – our people and our environment. We actively work to create a world where people can be safe and comfortable by designing, sourcing, producing, marketing and delivering our products and services in a secure, environmentally conscious and socially responsible manner.

Our commitment to sustainability begins with where we work. Our green building footprint spans the globe, with eight LEED® factories and 10 LEED offices around the world. But certification is only one part of the equation: inside each of our locations, we lead with human-centered policies, processes and practices that create safe and sustainable environments for our entire workforce.

Goals and Performance

We measure the effectiveness of our practices through several key performance indicators – and our dedication to consistent improvement is reflected in the numbers. As an independent company, we have committed to completing the sustainability goals established under our prior parent company, United Technologies, building on our more than 20-year EH&S legacy of tracking and reporting results across our operations.

Health and Safety

Carrier Corporate, EH&S, Lead with Safety Program, Operational Excellence

At Carrier, there’s nothing more important than protecting the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the natural environment. In keeping with The Carrier Way and our culture of continuous improvement, we’re replacing our Cardinal Rules with a new “Lead With Safety” program that includes a set of behaviors that all Carrier employees can embrace. Our 9 Safety Commitments empower our employees to stop work if any task cannot be performed safely, and support our existing EH&S program. Our program tracks the efficacy of our personal safety measures and helps reduce the frequency of incidents, upholding our 2030 commitment to maintain world-class safety metrics.

EHS Policy and Management Systems

Our EH&S management system and ongoing employee health and safety initiatives help protect our employees and ensure our compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Our EH&S management system also provides a framework for continuous improvement through integrated planning, performance and measurement. Our EH&S organization, governance and performance expectations are consistent with ISO 14001 and other global EH&S management system standards.
