The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recognized Carrier Corp. for its commitment to environmental sustainability, awarding the Monterrey, Mexico Commercial factory with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®)* Gold certification. The Carrier facility is the first HVAC factory in the world to receive LEED Gold certification.
LEED Gold certification represents one of the highest levels of environmental achievement within the LEED program. “This certification further demonstrates our natural leadership. Carrier is committed to providing energy efficient building solutions to our customers to help reduce their costs and minimize the impact on the environment. We apply those same standards internally to produce green products in green factories,” said Geraud Darnis, president of Carrier Corp. Darnis noted that the plant is also the first industrial facility outside of the U.S. to achieve LEED® Gold for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance™ certification.
