2030 ESG GOALS

Our 2030 ESG goals underscore our commitment to the things that matter and to continuously challenge ourselves to think bigger and to be better. Expanding on three decades of environmental targets, our goals now include our people and communities. We strive to be a positive catalyst for sustainable societal change as we innovate, empower our people and operate with integrity. That is The Carrier Way

 

OUR PLANET

Climate change is among the most significant issues facing humanity. HVAC contributes an estimated 15% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. More than one-third of all food produced is wasted every year, resulting in an estimated 4.4 gigatons of GHG emissions. We recognize the potential for smart, sustainable innovation, and are committed to setting science-based emissions targets aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement.


  • Reduce our customers' carbon footprint by more than 1 gigaton.
  • Invest over $2B to develop healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions that incorporate sustainable design principles and reduce lifecycle impacts.
  • Achieve carbon neutral operations.
  • Reduce energy intensity by 10% across our operations.
  • Achieve water neutrality in our operations prioritizing water-scarce locations.
  • Deliver zero waste to landfill from manufacturing locations.
  • Establish a responsible supply chain program and assess key factory suppliers against program criteria.

OUR PEOPLE

Our greatest strength is the diversity of our employees and their ideas. We are a company of innovators and problem-solvers who are united by The Carrier Way – our purpose, values and culture.


  • Exceed benchmark employee engagement. 
  • Achieve gender parity in senior leadership roles.
