Natural Leadership

From the very beginning, Carrier has been a natural leader. Not simply for the fact that we created an entirely new and innovative product, but because as we did so, we set the standard in environmental responsibility. Since 1994, we have led the industry in the phase-out of ozone-depleting refrigerants while introducing many of the world’s most energy-efficient heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.

Preservation of the environment and protecting our world’s finite natural resources are central tenets of our business. We recognize the vital importance of maintaining a responsible balance between the comfort we create today and the world we live in tomorrow.
