Carrier Corp. attended the Sixth International Green Building Conference in China, in support of its commitment to sustainable building in this country

Carrier and its parent company United Technologies Corporation were top sponsors of the Chinese conference for the last six years.

The company participated with products exhibitions, including the comprehensive high performance sustainable building solutions, like green building consultancy and design, energy efficient air conditioning equipment, cutting-edge building automation systems, and energy efficient retrofits for existing buildings.

Ross Shuster, president, Carrier Asia, when attending the International Green Building Conference commented: “Buildings consume 40 percent of the world’s energy. It is our mission at Carrier to address energy and environmental issues through creating more efficient and sustainable building solutions.”

Carrier’s EMSI was the main consultant in more than 50 percent of all the China LEED certified projects. At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Carrier covered 70 percent of all HVAC contracts for the venues.

The Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2009 between Carrier and the Bank of Beijing, strengthens the company’s leadership on the market.

“Carrier has been the expert in sustainability for over two decades, and now we want to make that green expertise more apparent to our Chinese customers and the local market,” added Shuster.

John Mandyck, Carrier’s vice president of Sustainability & Environmental Strategies commented: “Carrier is the first company in our industry to directly incorporate sustainability into its brand, reinforcing our environmental leadership.”

Carrier is the only company in the world to be a founding member of the U.S., India and China Green Building Councils.
