CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Carrier Corp. welcomed Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), to its Charlotte, N.C., chiller factory for a tour and overview of the company’s approach to environmental sustainability. Sutley viewed the manufacturing facility and spoke to employees building Carrier’s Evergreen® 23XRV chillers, which the company says exceed energy efficiency industry standards by 40 percent.

“Businesses that focus on sustainability and energy efficiency promote a clean energy economy that protects public health, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and creates jobs for the American people,” said Sutley. “In following President Obama’s vision of creating a robust clean energy economy, sustainable businesses will help the United States move forward to ensure a healthy and prosperous future.” 

“We are honored to host CEQ Chair Nancy Sutley to demonstrate firsthand the advancements in energy efficiency technologies for the built environment,” said John Mandyck, vice president, Sustainability & Environmental Strategies, Carrier. “We have a fundamental belief at Carrier that green products must start at green factories. Our Charlotte Operation has shown the way with its certification as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Existing Building (LEED® EB), one of only 11 factories globally to receive such distinction in 2009.”

Carrier said its Charlotte Chiller Operation has been awarded several honors in recognition of having become a world-class sustainable facility. Most recently, the manufacturing facility was named one of IndustryWeek’s top 10 Best Plants in North America. These awards come with safety at the forefront, said the company. The Charlotte team has over 10 years without a lost time incident. These honors also took place while nine new products were introduced, affecting every assembly line in the plant.

“Carrier leads the industry with sustainable solutions to advance energy efficiency and ozone protection, while minimizing the environmental impact of its manufacturing operations,” said Mandyck. “We will continue to serve as an environmental steward, finding both large and small ways to make the world a better place to live. The company is focused on delivering environmentally responsible energy efficient systems, services, and solutions to the world.”
