Sustainability Strategy at UTC: Energy Demand Reduction in Action

It has become increasingly apparent that driving inefficiency out and company growth go hand in hand.  However, the more efficient a company becomes the more difficult it is to increase efficiency.  For over ten years UTC has consistently reduced energy and water consumption while revenues have almost doubled.  The company has built several LEED certified buildings and plans to build 24 more.  It continues to make investments in lighting and HVAC systems as well as in process improvements.  Its combined heat and power (CHP) system helps fuel data centers more sustainably by using waste heat to cool the system.  Many of UTC's efficiency projects have relatively fast rates of return of three years or less, proving that efficiency measures can be the most cost-effective short-term energy solutions.
