Commit to reduce short-lived climate pollutant emissions
We Mean Business is a coalition of companies that agree to include measurement of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in their greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting, reduce emissions of shortlived climate pollutants (SLCPs), engage stakeholders in supply chains to reduce SLCPs, promote best practices and showcase successful efforts.
Companies agree to set a science-based target that is in line with the Science Based Target initiative’s call-to-action criteria. Ingersoll Rand’s goal of reducing the GHG refrigerant footprint of our products by 50% by 2020 and reducing the GHG emissions from our operations by 35% by 2020 was verified as a science-based goal in 2016 by the Science Based Target initiative.
Having met our original goal set in 2009 as part of the DOE Save Energy Now Leaders program, Ingersoll Rand became a Better Plants Challenge Partner in 2016 with a commitment to reduce energy intensity by 35% by end of year 2019.
Under the HFC Initiative, coalition partners support the development of HFC inventories and studies, information exchange on policy and technical issues, demonstration projects to validate and promote climate-friendly alternatives, and technologies and various capacity-building activities to disseminate information on emerging technologies and practices to transition away from high-global warming potential HFCs and minimize HFC leakages.
The AC Challenge was designed to urge governments, companies and other stakeholders to make, sell or install super-efficient air conditioner or cooling solutions that are smart, climate-friendly and affordable. It was created as a call to action, recognizing that access to cooling improves health, productivity, economic growth and education.
A coalition of business leaders, board members and academics who are committed to addressing the gender gap in corporate leadership.
The largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, representing more than 450 CEOs and presidents.
