Carrier is committed to making the world safer and more comfortable for generations to come. As we innovate to solve for the planet’s critical challenges, making a positive impact in our communities around the world is core to our purpose.
We promote environmental responsibility through sustainable building practices in urban areas, including climate resiliency, energy efficiency and water conservation. That’s why we support charitable organizations that seek to increase the resiliency of communities in addressing the physical and transitional impacts associated with climate change, such as The Nature Conservancy’s initiatives that help cities around the world become more resilient to meet the challenges of a changing climate.
Ensuring Safety & Security
Kidde created the Cause For Alarm fire safety awareness initiative to address gaps in education and access to fire safety measures. Together with fire departments, community organizations and other partners, Kidde educated people on the importance of fire safety and brought greater attention to fire safety inequities.
Delivering Fresh Food & Medicine
We design and manufacture technologies that transport fresh food from farm to market, and we work closely with organizations that focus on eliminating hunger and improving the cold chain. We have supported organizations like Feeding America through a grant program to help address the increased need for refrigerated transport and storage units for its network of food banks. We also teamed up with other leading companies and the United Nations World Food Programme to build a world-class cold chain Transport Training Centre in Ghana.
Building a Brighter Future
We believe that building a brighter future begins with inspiring people of all ages today. That’s why we invest in the next generation of innovators. Our employees have a particular interest in supporting skills-based volunteerism, focused on partnerships with leading nonprofits in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Partnering with organizations like FIRST robotics, our employees have dedicated thousands of hours mentoring and inspiring thousands of students who aspire to be the next generation of engineers, scientists and advanced manufacturing professionals.
Creating Vibrant Communities
Each year, Carrier volunteers with local organizations in the communities where we live and work. Thanks to the expertise, creativity and passion of our employees, we are making a difference in all of the places we call home. Our company has provided local Habitat for Humanity organizations with financial support, product donations from our Healthy Homes suite of indoor air quality and fire safety solutions, and countless employee volunteer hours. In 2022, Carrier supported home builds across six U.S. cities as a signature partner of Habitat for Humanity’s Home is the Key campaign to create safe and affordable housing.
Employee Matching Gifts Program
Our employees are a force for good, supporting the communities where they live and work through volunteerism, but also by contributing financially. Through the Carrier Matching Gifts Program, a dollar-for-dollar charitable donation matching program designed to extend the impact of Carrier employees’ donations to qualified non-profit organizations, our employees have the opportunity to make a difference in their communities.
The Carrier Foundation
The Carrier Foundation was established in 2021 with the vision to foster healthy, safe and sustainable communities. In support of this vision, the Foundation will invest in enabling equitable access to healthy, safe and sustainable built environments, food and medicine, and STEM education. In addition, the Foundation will invest in supporting diversity and inclusion and sustainability, specifically climate resiliency, energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and water conservation. The Foundation will fund Carrier’s Matching Gifts program and disaster relief initiatives.
