Carrier Corporation is reducing its fuel use and green house gas emissions following an analysis of the company’s entire fleet of vehicles. Carrier changed its sales fleet by removing gas guzzling trucks in favor of hybrids and smaller engine vehicles. Carrier’s GPS system generates data that has provided visibility to other savings opportunities, for instance, carrying unnecessary equipment in trucks increased both weight and gasoline usage. Fleet vehicles now carry only the tools and parts that are required. The GPS technology provides data for fuel economy performance across the country and has led to an average mile per gallon increase of nearly 7 percent, according to the Carrier Corp.
“Greening our fleet is another example of Carrier’s environmentally sound business practices,” stated Erv Lauterbach, president, Carrier Building Systems and Services. We are committed to sustainability across our products, services and operations.” Carrier Corp. is the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions. The company is100% committed to going green by reducing its fleet fuel usage and global green house gas (GHG) emissions.
