Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), a global climate innovator, will underscore the critical need for adoption of new and existing solutions at scale, accelerated climate policy and transparent emissions reporting during COP28 in Dubai, November 30 December 12. As the window for limiting global warming to 1.5°C continues to narrow, Trane Technologies steadfastly encourages bolder accountability in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals including Gender Equality (SDG5), Affordable Clean Energy (SDG7) and Climate Action (SDG13).
"Accelerating decarbonization requires not only innovation, but also advocating for policies that remove barriers and support adoption at scale," said Scott Tew, vice president of Sustainability, Trane Technologies. "Companies around the world, across all sectors, must be held accountable for meeting commitments and driving urgent action now as we collectively work toward a more sustainable future."
Trane Technologies is a proud member of the World Economic Forum's Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders and a signatory of its COP28 open letter, calling for an increase in public-private collaboration and action to reduce emissions across global value chains. Trane Technologies leaders will join several climate action dialogues throughout COP28, including:

"The technology exists today that can dramatically reduce emissions for both our own and our customers' environmental footprints," said Jose La Loggia, president, Commercial HVAC EMEA, Trane Technologies. "Innovative thermal management systems, renewable energy sources and the electrification of heating are becoming game-changing solutions for the built environment enabling energy security while improving efficiency."
Broadly acknowledged for its industry-leading transparency, credibility and accountability, Trane Technologies has recently received several notable recognitions for climate action. The company was one of only four to earn a grade of A in As You Sow's 2023 Road to Zero Emissions Report, which evaluates greenhouse gas (GHG) emission disclosures, GHG target setting and GHG reductions. Trane Technologies was also one of only five North American companies recognized by InfluenceMap as a 2023 Corporate Climate Policy Engagement Leader, after meeting its criteria for positive and active climate policy engagement aligned with science-based pathways for delivering on the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Through bold, industry-leading action, Trane Technologies is advancing its 2030 Sustainability Commitments, including the Gigaton Challenge a pledge to reduce customer greenhouse gas emissions by 1 billion metric tons (or, one gigaton) and its pledge to be net-zero by 2050. In 2014, the company set its first science-based 2020 Climate Commitments accelerating innovation to achieve them two years ahead of schedule.
