Leadership

Sustainability at UTC means we can do good for the planet while we do good for our employees, communities, customers and shareowners. The process of integrating sustainability into UTC’s business strategy began in 1991 when we first established environment and safety goals. UTC’s program has evolved into a comprehensive strategy that includes absolute annual reductions in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Since 1997, we have tripled the size of our business while reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 34 percent and water consumption by 57 percent.
