Environment: Climate Change

Global action to address climate change remains a critical priority for companies across the world. As a global provider of products that heat, cool and automate homes and buildings, our industry has an important role to play in helping to mitigate global climate change. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), more than one quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from electricity and heat production. That is why, in 2014, we issued our global Climate Commitment.

At Ingersoll Rand, we are well on our way to achieving our Climate Commitment to increase energy efficiency and reduce the GHG emissions related to our operations and products. We have already enabled the avoidance of 11 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) emissions globally from our products compared to a 2013 baseline.
