Jul 13, 2023

Sustainability leader’s cooling cart also recognized by Fast Company as one of its 2023 World Changing Ideas

SWORDS, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), a global climate innovator, has been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 2023 Best Workplaces for Innovators. The list ranks 100 global companies from a variety of industries that empower its employees to create new products, invent new ways of doing business or improve processes. Trane Technologies was also named as a finalist in the Sustainability category.

“Relentlessly innovating for a more sustainable world is core to our business strategy, and every day, our teams push the boundaries of what’s possible to deliver industry-leading results,” said Paul Camuti, executive vice president and chief technology and sustainability officer for Trane Technologies. “This prestigious recognition honors their dedication to creating healthy spaces and decarbonizing buildings, the cold chain and industries with high energy demands.”

Trane Technologies’ passive cooling cart for street vendors was also recognized by Fast Company as one of its 2023 World Changing Ideas. The cart was named the winner in the Developing World Technology category, a finalist in the General Excellence and Large Business categories and received an honorable mention in the Sustainability/Energy category.

The cooling cart is designed to provide a reliable income and improve the quality of life for millions of street vendors around the world. It reduces food waste and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. The cart utilizes dual-mode film technology that reflects sunlight to prevent fresh produce from overheating, while passively cooling the area beneath the canopy. This design does not require electricity and can be retrofitted onto existing carts already in-use.

Trane Technologies’ cooling cart is the result of Operation Possible, an employee-powered social innovation program that addresses the most pressing social and environmental challenges, including the coexistence of food loss and hunger in low-income communities. By harnessing the power of innovative collaboration, Operation Possible is accelerating the potential for positive change for both people and the planet.

Other recent examples of innovation at Trane Technologies include:

Trane Technologies’ innovation expertise powers its 2030 Sustainability Commitments, which addresses global challenges that affect the communities around the world. These commitments include the Gigaton Challenge - a pledge to reduce customer greenhouse gas emissions by one gigaton (or, 2% of the world’s annual emissions) by 2030. The company was also first in its industry and among the first across all sectors to receive validation from the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) for its near-term 2030 emissions reduction targets and its long-term 2050 net-zero target.
