As it is with our research, UTRC’s commitment to improving the world around us helps define our focus across all environment, health and safety issues. Our Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) organization provides technical expertise to create and sustain a workplace that is free from hazards, supports safe operations and is unmatched in our shared responsibility to protect our natural environment.
Our parent company, UTC, has a history of setting aggressive environmental goals and meeting them by continuously improving processes at every level of the company. In recent years, UTC progressed from site Environment, Health & Safety impact goals to a broader program that incorporates site, supply chain and product goals. From the 2006 baseline, UTC as a whole has reduced industrial process waste, water consumption and non-greenhouse gasses by 37 percent, 26 percent and 61 percent, respectively. UTC also reduced lost workday incident rate by 59 percent. But we are striving to do more, and continue to move forward to improve our performance as part of UTC’s Sustainability Goals.
