We approach sustainability by integrating it into the anatomy of how we operate and help our customers succeed.
Our commitment to sustainability comes from the top of our organization. Accountability for these best practices is in the hands of our Internal Sustainability Strategy Council, a group of company executives who provide guidance on key business, social and environmental issues. In addition, we draw upon the expertise of an External Sustainability Advisory Council comprised of global thought leaders in infrastructure, energy policy and technology.
On a daily basis, the Ingersoll Rand Center for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability (CEES), a team of company experts, integrates sustainability into the business. The CEES team facilitates the company’s sustainability-related work with government and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), universities, and technology and industry leaders. These collaborations enable us to implement sustainability best practices in areas such as product innovation, employee engagement, operations, supply chain and advocacy.
Governance, Ethics and Risk Management
The core values of Ingersoll Rand — Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Innovation and Courage — are the foundation of our enduring success. Integrity leads this list of values because it is fundamental to our 146-year reputation as a company that can be trusted by employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and the communities in which we operate. Integrity is fundamental to our philosophy of corporate governance. We not only operate in accordance with the law and the highest standards of ethical conduct, but do what is right for our stakeholders, for the environment and for society.
