Carrier plans to slash customers' carbon footprint

Carrier Global Corporation has announced the company’s first set of environmental, social & governance (ESG) goals since becoming an independent company in April.

Building on the company’s vision to create solutions that matter for people and the planet, Carrier is targeting carbon neutrality across its operations by 2030. The company is also aiming to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by more than one gigaton, supported by a planned investment of more than $2 billion over the next 10 years toward the development of healthier, safer and more sustainable building and cold chain solutions.

“At Carrier, we are applying our industry-leading innovation to fight climate change through new energy-efficient product offerings and through lower emissions in our operations,” said Dave Gitlin, president and chief executive, Carrier. “Our 2030 goals will drive our company to be a positive catalyst for societal change in our areas of expertise, including healthy buildings and the cold chain, as well as in the communities in which we operate around the world.”

The 2030 ESG goals include a transformation of the company’s operations to be carbon-neutral while maintaining world-class safety metrics, and the incorporation of leading sustainable design principles from manufacturing through end-of-life.

Additional goals include the following:

• Achieve carbon and water neutral operations and deliver zero-waste to landfill from our manufacturing locations

• Establish a responsible supply chain program and assess key factory suppliers against program criteria

• Achieve gender parity in senior leadership roles and a diverse workforce that represents the communities in which Carrier’s employees live and work

• Positively impact our communities through enabling access to safe and healthy indoor environments, alleviating hunger and food waste, and volunteering our time and talent

• Invest in STEM education programs that promote diversity and inclusion, and promote sustainability through education, partnerships and climate resiliency programs

• Maintain world-class safety metrics.

Insurers call for improved ventilation safety

The need to improve standards of ventilation hygiene to reduce the risk of fires in catering establishments has been highlighted by property insurers.

The industry specification TR19 Grease, developed and managed by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA),  and its supporting Vent Hygiene Elite (VHE) Scheme have been designated as best practice by the RICSAuthority the body that carries out research on behalf of insurers to safeguard building occupants and reduce the risk of damage to properties.

Its latest guidance reminds property managers of the need to use verifiably competent ventilation hygiene contractors to maintain their kitchen extract systems to reduce the likelihood of fires starting and being spread by the build-up of flammable grease deposits in ductwork.
