More than 100 green building professionals recently attended the 2019 Carrier Green Building and Application Seminar with the theme of “Green Done Easy.” Hosted in Nanjing by Carrier China, the seminar welcomed representatives from design institutes and green building development enterprises, as well as senior experts from Carrier, to exchange ideas about green building solutions and green city construction and application in China’s new first-tier cities. Carrier is a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire and security, and building automation technologies.
Carrier has always been committed to changing the world through technological innovation, and convening experts on urban green construction supports this commitment. Industry experts at the Green Building and Application Seminar discussed broad issues like global climate change, energy shortages and ecological environment deterioration. And thought leaders exchanged ideas on how to support the construction of green cities and the development of green, circular economies with low carbon emissions.

Carrier is the only enterprise in the world sitting as a founding member of Green Building Councils in the United States, China, India, Argentina, Singapore and France.”
"Carrier's customer-centric innovation is reflected in its deep understanding of local demand," said Chris Opie, vice president, Product Marketing & Platform Strategy, Carrier. “China's green industry will continue to develop vigorously. In the past few years, Carrier has launched a number of global technology-leading products in China, including the AquaEdge 19DV two-stage water-cooled centrifugal chiller using the new ultra-low GWP refrigerant R-1233zd(e) and the new flexible AquaFlow Variable Water Volume multi-connection system.”

Meng introduced several major policies to promote the development of green buildings and green eco-city standards, as well as the main changes and characteristics of national and industrial standards around green building to be promulgated in China.
“As an important part of the sustainable development of urban construction, green building is imperative,” said Meng. “I'm glad to see that Carrier is leading a series of seminars that will provide a good platform for technology and information exchange for the industry.”
