Trane Technologies targets carbon neutrality by 2030
Trane Technologies announced April 27 that they have achieved an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the use of their refrigerant products since 2013, surpassing their 50% target, and are committed to being carbon neutral in their operations by 2030.
The climate control products manufacturer released their 2019 environmental report, in which they detail their achievements in decreasing operational Scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity by 50% since 2013, surpassing their 35% target, and their 27% increase in energy efficiency since 2013. Additionally, since 2013 Trane Technologies has avoided more than 20 million metric tons of CO2e globally from their products and reduced energy consumption by 23,513 MWh since 2013.
Moving forward, they have pledged to reduce customer carbon emissions by one gigaton by 2030 and to achieve a 10% absolute reduction in energy consumption by 2030. They are also targeting 100% renewable energy. At the end of 2019, the company had four investments in on- and off-site renewable energy in New Jersey, South Carolina, China and Texas with estimated annual productions of 1,900 kW, 1.35 MW, 2,800 kW and 110,000 MWh of clean energy, respectively.
As many of their emissions come from electricity use and refrigerants, Trane intends to pursue their 2030 goal of carbon neutrality by optimizing HVAC systems, focusing on phasing out refrigerants with high global warming potential, investing in renewable energy, completing electrification and route optimization of their fleet and purchasing carbon credits for any unavoidable emissions.
