The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has honored Carrier with the Best of the Best Stratospheric Ozone Protection award.
Carrier, the world's largest provider of heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, was given the award in Montreal to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol.
Carrier's expertise in providing innovative green products enabled it to capture 70% of all HVAC contracts awarded.
With Carrier's success in supplying energy efficient HVAC products for the 2008 olympic games, the company plans to offer similar solutions to developers of the 2012 games in London.
Best-of-the-Best award nominees were evaluated by the federal Environmental Protection Agency staff and judged by an international panel representing industry, government and non-governmental organizations.
