Carrier is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products and solutions and reducing energy consumption. This commitment is in line with the targets of the European climate and energy package for 2030:
ENERGY EFFICIENCY EMENT IMPROVEMENT GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
SHARE OF RENEWABLE EN ENERGY
The refrigerant charge and energy consumption are the two main contributors to the carbon footprint of chillers and heat pumps, a fact recognized by Carrier in its research & development investments well before the topic hit the headlines.
High performance design
The impact of the machines on global warming is mainly due to the primary energy used for their operation. Carrier designs products that achieve optimized energy performance throughout the year and limit the indirect release of CO2 associated with the consumption of electricity. From the design stage, Carrier works on optimizing its manufacturing process to produce highly reliable products. A limited number of welding joints avoids possible leaks at the source. All Carrier machines are tested in special booths to ensure they are leak-proof.
Minimized refrigerant charge Life cycle approach
By 2006, Carrier became the first company to introduce the all-aluminium microchannel heat exchanger (MCHE) technology in the commercial air conditioning industry. Since 2011, a new generation of microchannel is available: Novation® Microchannel. - Up to 50% refrigerant charge reduction vs. traditional Cu/Al (copper/ aluminium) coils* - Better thermal performance, better efficiency and lower air pressure drop vs. Cu/Al coils* Carrier continues to work towards the reduction of refrigerant charge in its products and includes this as a key performance indicator for all new product developments. Carrier products are extensively tested and maintained to a very high level, thanks to an extended service offering to ensure the best performance during the entire life cycle of the equipment. An advanced monitoring solutions offering continuously collects information from equipments to anticipate and prevent loss of performance or any damage. This offer, available in three levels of service, enables users to track and monitor their HVAC system performance and to take preventive and corrective actions remotely, optimizing the lifetime of the equipment.

The Carrier CO2NSERVATION Meter
This meter calculates avoided greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as a result of the installation of high-efficiency Carrier air conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems by customers around the world since 2000. As of March 31, 2016, the Carrier CO2NSERVATION Meter reached more than 190 million metric tons of greenhouse gases saved, equivalent to:
Approximately 44,000,000 vehicles removed from the road for one year*
Saved the electricity consumed by approximately 26,000,000 homes during one year*
* According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency Green Power Equivalency Calculator - The model compares the projected GHG emissions from select Carrier products to emissions from comparable baseline products, with the difference representing the avoided emissions. The meter also incorporates energy savings as measured from energy service contracts. The model demonstrates the power of choosing high efficiency solutions.
