2030 ESG GOALS

As the leading global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions, Carrier is committed to making the world safer, sustainable and more comfortable for generations to come. Building on our vision to create solutions that matter for people and our planet, Carrier is targeting carbon neutrality across its operations by 2030 and aiming to reduce our customers’ carbon footprint by more than one gigaton. This will be supported by planned investments of more than $2 billion over the next 10 years toward the development of healthier, safer and more sustainable solutions.

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.
