PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Feb. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Buildings are the biggest, most cost-effective climate mitigation solution available, according to a recent study. And more than one-third of the food produced for human consumption is lost before it can even make it to market, resulting in a significant carbon footprint. Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions, is solving for these challenges through a comprehensive, integrated and growing suite of sustainability solutions and services that allow customers to reach their energy and decarbonization goals.

"Our suite of bespoke sustainability solutions – ranging from energy-efficient products to energy optimization services – are designed to reduce carbon emissions and support healthier communities worldwide," said Jennifer Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer, Carrier. "The future demands a decarbonized world and Carrier is ready to advance this mission through a holistic approach that helps our customers meet their sustainability goals and decarbonize at the pace and scale needed to deliver on the Paris Climate Accord."

Carrier is aiming to reduce its customers' carbon footprint by more than one gigaton by 2030 in part through a tailored approach for commissioning, specifying equipment and providing assessment services based on each customer's sustainability, operational and budgetary goals. The approach meets building and cold chain customers where they are within the product lifecycle and capital planning process with expertise and solutions to design, enable and deliver improved sustainability.
