Our 2030 ESG goals underscore Carrier's 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 include measures to improve our planet, our people and our communities through sustainable solutions, investments and practices. We strive to be a catalyst for positive and sustainable change as we innovate, empower our people and operate with integrity. That is The Carrier Way

In addition, Carrier recently committed to setting near- and long-term greenhouse gas emission reduction goals in line with the Science Based Targets initiative to limit global warming to 1.5°C. In accordance with this initiative, we also are targeting net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across our value chain by 2050.



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 greenhouse gas 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 $2 billion 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 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. 
  • Achieve a diverse workforce that represents the communities in which we live and work.

Decades of leadership in sustainability have guided Carrier to the forefront of healthy buildings, healthy homes and a more connected cold chain. Throughout our global operations, we are reducing our environmental footprint and making investments that have a positive impact on society.

  • Positively impact communities by enabling access to safe and healthy indoor environments, alleviating hunger and food waste, and volunteering our time and talent.
  • Invest in science, technology, engineering and math education programs that promote diversity and inclusion. 
  • Promote sustainability through education, partnerships and climate resiliency programs.
