Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, won the title of Operation and Maintenance Company of the Year for the fourth consecutive year at the Climate Control Awards held in Dubai.
An annual event honoring the HVACR industry’s strong commitment to socio-economic development and sustainable development goals, the award underscores the Trane’s commitment to globally reducing energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions.
Regionally, HVAC systems account for around 40 to 60 percent of buildings’ total energy. Trane’s maintenance and services take into account this demand, giving customers effective support in increasing reliability, reducing total cost of ownership and minimizing environmental impact.
“We are very pleased with the recognitions which Trane has consecutively received since the inception of the Climate Control Awards seven years ago, said Johan Samuelsson, Vice President & Managing Director for Trane MEA in accepting the award. “Setting industry benchmarks is nothing new for Trane and we will continue this progress of environmental stewardship within our portfolio of HVAC equipment and next generation, low GWP refrigerants.”
Ingersoll Rand and its family of brands, including Trane, made a climate commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from all its products and operations by 2030. The commitment pledges to cut the GHG refrigerant footprint of its products by 50 percent by 2020, incorporate lower-GWP alternatives across its portfolio by 2030, invest $500 million in product-related research and development by 2020 to fund the long-term reduction of GHG emissions, and reduce company operations-related GHG emissions by 35 percent by 2020.
Trane’s operations and maintenance operations in the Middle East span the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Lebanon, Egypt and Saudi Arabi, with more than 500 chillers shipped to the UAE and neighboring GCC countries since 2000.
