Joins the World Economic Forum to Advance a Sustainable World
Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), a global climate innovator, has been named to the 2021 Corporate Knights Global 100 index of the world’s most sustainable corporations. Corporate Knights released its 17th annual ranking in Davos today, after a rigorous assessment of over 8,000 companies.
"We’re proud to earn a place on the Corporate Knights’ elite list as one of the world’s most sustainable companies," said Mike Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer of Trane Technologies. "Leading with a bold purpose to challenge what’s possible for a sustainable world and embedding environmental and social principles into our strategy and operations is the right thing to do. It’s not only good for our company’s performance, it’s also vital to building a better future for our people, communities and planet. By challenging ourselves to think differently, take bold action and form collaborative partnerships, we can help solve major global challenges like climate change."
Global 100 companies represent the top one percent in the world on sustainability performance and are analyzed on 24 quantitative key performance indicators including resource management, employee management, financial management and supplier performance. Trane Technologies’ progress in increasing clean revenue and energy productivity were critical factors in achieving the high ranking.
