Carrier China’s Green Shoots Program Supports Manhai Elementary School Library
As part of its Green Shoots program, employee volunteers from Carrier North Asia visited the Manhai Elementary School in Jinghong City, Xishuangbanna in the Yunnan Province, providing books to more than 250 students. Launched in 2011, Carrier’s Green Shoots program brings together employee volunteers to support primary education in Asia, strengthening science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for children. Carrier China is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.
When Carrier employees learned that the students lacked reading materials, they organized a book donation drive and collected more than 500 new and used books from employees. Volunteers set up a school library and conducted STEM classes with storytelling, experiments and quizzes for each grade.
The school principal presented a certificate of donation and a silk banner to Carrier in appreciation. The recycling of 300 kilograms of books helps to reduce carbon emissions in the papermaking and printing processes of new books and underscores Carrier’s commitment to positively impacting communities.
“Carrier employees are committed to supporting our company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals,” said Titus Yu, Vice President and General Manager of North Asia HVAC, Carrier. “With an emphasis on STEM and sustainability education, the Green Shoots program is helping prepare future generations to be successful with more varied interests to benefit society.”About Carrier
