​Innovating for a Better World

​Buildings consume 40% of the world’s energy, with HVAC systems accounting for 50%. 

As a leading manufacturer of HVAC solutions, we have a profound responsibility to reshape their impact on the planet and pave the way for an environmentally conscious future.

Innovative Solutions: Our products can reduce a building's carbon footprint by up to 30%, slash energy costs, and curtail CO₂ emissions. Our R&D teams are unwavering in their pursuit of superior solutions.

Adaptable Solutions: We prioritise developing products that can be retrofitted into renovation projects. This significantly reduces a building's carbon footprint, making optimisation and renovation highly effective in helping our customers achieve their environmental goals. 

Sustainable System Longevity: Our products are designed with longevity at their core. This dramatically reduces the need for frequent replacements or upgrades while driving energy savings.

Our Leading it” strategy addresses the energy consumption challenges of HVAC systems head-on. Guiding our journey towards a more energy-efficient and better world.

Manufacturing for a Better World​

We live our commitment to sustainability and building a better world by continuously improving our manufacturing process and helping build a more sustainable HVAC industry. To achieve our goals, we focus on three key impact areas: 

Our Carbon Footprint: We're committed to reducing our carbon footprint by transitioning to cleaner energy sources and minimising the environmental impact of our sales team's travel. We aim to achieve Zero Carbon status by 2040, leading the way to a greener future. 

Sustainable Water Management: We're dedicated to responsible water use, actively reducing consumption through systems that efficiently recycle water. We aim to source 40% of our water supply from recycling systems by 2040. 

Waste Reduction: We're dedicated to using eco-friendly materials for all our packaging and products, minimising waste. We aim to eliminate our waste to landfill by 2025. 

Our actions in these three impact areas are the bedrock of our “Living It” strategy, encapsulating our commitment to fostering a greener and more responsible manufacturing ecosystem.
