Sustainability

Our Commitment to Sustainability

A high school in Chicago. A candy manufacturing plant in Poland. A financial services headquarters in St. Paul. A bank data center in Italy. Initially, these buildings seem to have little in common, as disparate in function as they are in geography. But each represents a successful Trane solution to the demand for greater sustainabile businesses.

Trane understands that the demand for sustainable business practices and environments has grown dramatically. Customers have come to expect that the companies with whom they do business remain aggressively committed to sustainability, not only as a gesture of responsible environmental stewardship but also as an articulation of their forward-thinking, future-focused approach to business. Trane helps organizations achieve not only the building mission, but also their goals for greater energy efficiency – now and for generations to come.
