The National Building Museum honored the United Technologies Corp. (UTC) in a gala held in Washington, D.C. on June 4 for the company’s energy-efficient building products and for creating energy and environmental improvements in its manufacturing operations.

In his speech in the awarding ceremony, Louis Chenevert, President and Chief Executive Officer of UTC, said “the building sector consumes about 40 percent of the energy used in the U.S. and is responsible for nearly 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. With products and technology available today, energy consumption in buildings could be cut by almost 70 percent, which is equivalent to eliminating the energy consumption of the entire U.S. transportation sector.”

The company manufactures energy-efficient products for its customers, including Carrier’s new Evergreen cooling technology that uses 40% less energy and Otis ReGen elevators that consume up to 75% less energy than most conventional models. Other products include access control systems that manage resources efficiently, sustainable onsite power generation, fire suppression systems, and custom customer-driven sustainable solutions.

UTC is still committed to promote energy efficiency and positive environmental performance in all its business and manufacturing options. The company has set its first environmental goals in 1992, and has reduced its energy consumption by 22% and water consumption by 50% since 1997.

United Technologies Corp. (UTC) manufactures energy-efficient products and services for the building and aerospace industries. The company has revenues of $58.7 billion in 2008. UTC is also a founding member of the US Green Building Council and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. The company’s headquarters is located in Hartford, Connecticut.
