Honeywell has announced that by 2019 it will reduce its global greenhouse gas emissions by an additional 10% per dollar of revenue from its 2013 levels. Amir Naqvi, Regional Marketing Leader, Honeywell Fluorine Products, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, said that the new target was made following the company’s success in meeting its previous objectives. “We exceeded our first public goal to reduce global greenhouse gases by more than 30% and improve energy efficiency by more than 20% between 2004 and 2011,” he said. “A second five-year goal, set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an additional 15% per dollar of revenue from 2011 levels, was met three years early.”

Naqvi said that there has been significant progress towards sustainability in recent years, and that Honeywell believes that for this positive momentum to continue, investment must be made, and HVACR companies must remain committed to meeting respective targets. He emphasised that Honeywell is eager to play its part to drive progress in this regard.

Naqvi made a case for the growing importance of energy efficiency in the United States by citing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR programme. This is a non-regulatory programme to promote greater energy efficiency in appliances, commercial equipment, industrial processes and buildings, he pointed out.

“As of the end of 2008,” he said, “about 125,000 buildings, representing about seven billion square feet of floor space, had been benchmarked for energy efficiency using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.” By the end of 2015, Naqvi stressed, this number had grown to a cumulative total of more than 450,000 buildings, equalling 40 billion square feet of floor space.
