    Enviromental responsibility

    Carrier is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products and solutions and reducing energy consumption. This commitment is in line with the targets of the European climate and energy package for 2020:

    • -20% Use of primary energy
    • 20% Share of renewable energy
    • -20% CO2 Emissions

    Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives

    Ecodesign takes into account a product’s impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle and plays an essential role in meeting the 2020 targets. In the European Union, the Ecodesign Directive sets mandatory energy efficiency requirements for all energy-related products (ERPs), including air conditioning products. Therefore, this directive pushes the market away from low-performance products, requiring
    manufacturers to develop products that consume less energy. In addition, the European Energy Labelling Directive classifies products from G to A, according to their efficiency. This pulls the market towards more energy-efficient products by improving consumer information.

    In September 2015, heat pumps will become the first commercial products to be submitted to the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives. Conformity is mandatory for a product to obtain the CE marking.

    Carrier heat pumps are all in the classes A to A ++.
