Ingersoll Rand was recognized for addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its own operations and products, and continued research for a sustainable future. The company achieved its commitment to reduce its own greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint by 35% by 2020 by focusing on energy reduction, optimization of refrigerant charging, upgrading its fleet to improve gas mileage, and renewable energy. During the past four years, it has reduced GHG emissions associated with operations by 37% – surpassing its goal two years early.

“Ingersoll Rand’s commitment to environmental stewardship runs deep and is core to how we operate and help our customers succeed,” said Eric Rankin, Vice President of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) at Ingersoll Rand, who accepted the award on behalf of the company. “It is an honor to be recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation with this year’s Best Environmental Stewardship award as we continue to strive for better and faster ways to reduce our impact on the environment.”

“Ingersoll Rand is leading a steadfast commitment to reduce its environmental footprint,” said Marc DeCourcey, Senior Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “Its dedication ensures a more sustainable future for communities around the world."
