Carrier New Healthy Buildings Program
Carrier has introduced the Healthy Buildings Program, a suite of solutions to help deliver healthy, safe, efficient and productive indoor environments across key verticals.
Carrier also launched Corporate.Carrier.com/HealthyBuildings web site to allow customers to consult with Carrier.
“COVID-19 has reinforced the important role that buildings play in ensuring and protecting public health,” said Dave Gitlin, President and CEO, Carrier. “As people return to work, hotels greet guests, schools welcome back students and stores reopen, indoor air quality and safe buildings are of paramount importance. For the economy to successfully recover, people need to have trust in the safety of the buildings they are entering. New technologies like microscopic filtration systems and touchless building controls have gone from nice-to-have conveniences to must-have protections. The Carrier Healthy Buildings Program can help enable healthier and safer indoor environments as we get back to our new normal.”
