Trane Charmes transitioning away from fossil fuels with innovative heat pump technology

Installation of new electrified Thermal Management System provides all-electric heating to the facility and is expected to reduce 1,800 metric tons of carbon emissions

SWORDS, Ireland – Dec. 15, 2022 – Trane® by Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), a global climate innovator, celebrated a major milestone in its efforts to reduce the company’s carbon footprint with the installation of an electrified Thermal Management System at its manufacturing facility in Charmes (88), France. Leveraging innovative heat pump technology, all-electric heating is now being provided to the entire site and can deliver simultaneous heating and cooling when required. The new system is expected to reduce 1,800 metric tons of carbon annually – the equivalent of the emissions generated from powering nearly 230 homes for one year.

Mayor of Charmes, Patrick Boeuf and Madame La Prefete, Valérie MICHEL-MOREAUX, along with other public officials joined Trane Technologies chair and CEO Dave Regnery and additional Trane Technologies leaders and employees to recognize the milestone.

“The installation of the electrified Thermal Management System at Trane Charmes is an example of the real-world, sustainability-in-action needed to bend the curve on climate change,” said Dave Regnery. “I’m proud of the hard work of our dedicated employees in Charmes and throughout Europe who are boldly challenging what’s possible for a sustainable world. Their tireless efforts and bold thinking are inspiring the change needed to transform our industry now and into the future.”

“This necessary ecological planning, which we must implement at the local level, is a great movement of society to achieve carbon neutrality in 2050, by mobilizing all actors. The State, local authorities, businesses, associations and each and every one of our fellow citizens”, said Madame La Prefete, Valerie Michel-Moreaux.

Trane Charmes is helping Trane Technologies reach its sustainability goals. The facility achieved zero waste to landfill in 2012, is fully equipped with LED lighting and has reduced its water consumption by 63% since 2019. The plant’s employees innovate, manufacture and test large chillers, heat pumps and rooftop units which help buildings achieve higher efficiency and improved indoor environmental quality. These products are used in commercial buildings such as hospitals, schools, offices and hotels.

Trane Technologies is helping solve for some of the world’s biggest sustainability challenges and inspiring industry and global change with its 2030 Sustainability Commitments , including the Gigaton Challenge and its pledge to be net-zero by 2050, with emissions reductions targets validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and in alignment with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).
