Charters

Ingersoll Rand aligns with several charters that support and advance our sustainability goals. 

CEO Action For Diversity and Inclusion 
The largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, representing more than 450 CEOs and presidents. 

Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) Advanced Cooling (AC) Challenge
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.  

Climate And Clean Air Coalition HFC Initiative 
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.  

Global Human Rights Policy
Many of the standards set forth in our Human Rights Policy align with basic working conditions and human rights concepts advanced by international organizations such as the International Labor Organization and the United Nations

Paradigm For Parity
A coalition of business leaders, board members and academics who are committed to addressing the gender gap in corporate leadership.
