Ingersoll Rand is a voluntary participant in several external sustainability initiatives that help drive improved performance for our company and the greater community:
Climate Leaders – Climate Leaders is a U.S. EPA industry-government partnership that works with companies to develop comprehensive climate change strategies. Partner companies commit to reducing their impact on the global environment by completing a corporate-wide inventory of their greenhouse gas emissions based on a quality management system, setting aggressive reduction goals, and annually reporting their progress to EPA.
Climate RESOLVE – Business Roundtable's Climate RESOLVE (Responsible Environmental Steps, Opportunities to Lead by Voluntary Efforts) initiative seeks to have every member company in every sector of the economy undertake voluntary actions to control greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve the GHG intensity of the U.S. economy.
GreenChill – The GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership is a U.S. EPA cooperative alliance with the supermarket industry and other stakeholders to promote advanced technologies, strategies, and practices that reduce refrigerant charges and emissions of ozone-depleting substances and greenhouse gases. Working with EPA, GreenChill Partners transition to non-ozone-depleting refrigerants; reduce refrigerant charges; reduce both ozone-depleting and greenhouse gas refrigerant emissions; and promote supermarkets’ adoption of advanced refrigeration technologies.
S.E.E. Change - Business Roundtable’s S.E.E. Change (Society, Environment, and Economy) initiative encourages member companies to lead by example and adopt business strategies and projects that measurably improve society, the environment, and the economy. The program’s driving force revolves around the concept of sustainability as the cornerstone for how member companies can “do well by doing good” – now a proven growth strategy.
SmartWay – Thermo King is an affiliate partner in U.S. EPA’s SmartWay Transport, an innovative collaboration between the freight industry and government to reduce fuel consumption from trucks and rail delivering freight, operating costs associated with freight delivery, emissions of CO2 and emissions of NOx, particulate matter, and air toxics.
