Earth Day 2024: Carrier Celebrates Progress Toward a Sustainable Future
As a global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions, Carrier is dedicated to improving our planet, our people and our communities for generations to come. In celebration of Earth Day and as part of Carrier’s goal to positively impacting communities in which we live, work and operate, Carrier employees are participating in clean-up activities across the globe to help shape a sustainable future for a better tomorrow.
From Monterrey, Mexico, to Indianapolis, Indiana, employees are volunteering their time to improve public spaces near Carrier facilities. On April 19 near its global headquarters in South Florida, employee volunteers removed debris from a local beach to help restore and conserve the shoreline for the upcoming sea turtle nesting season. Armed with gloves, mesh bags and trash grabbers, volunteers worked to beautify the shoreline behind Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
