Armstrong Partners with Industry Leaders To Launch Global “2 in 22” GHG Initiative

11.07.2018

Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced an initiative to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2 million tons by the year 2022 and issued a challenge to industry participants to set similarly aggressive targets for the same 4-year time frame.

“Organizations globally are being driven to achieve a zero footprint future. We believe this can best be achieved through key stakeholders focusing on solutions and timelines that will make zero footprint a near-term reality,” said Lex van der Weerd, Armstrong’s CEO. “We are both inviting and challenging all organizations to join us in pursuing the goal of zero footprint operations.”

Armstrong announced at the recent Global Energy Summit in Toronto that the company is committed to reducing GHG among its installed customer base by 2 million tons by the year 2022. This is equivalent to taking 600,000 cars off the road or offsetting the average annual CO2 emissions generated by 100,000 people.

Armstrong has already launched a global validation effort across a wide range of customer types and applications with the results being validated by Bureau Veritas. The company is also significantly expanding the team of energy-savings specialists that will work closely with existing customers to measure, manage and enhance their current operations.

“While aggressive, we believe this goal is absolutely achievable,” van der Weerd emphasized. “We have spent the last several years developing technology solutions that conserve energy and water, improve system efficiencies and deliver strong and often immediate economic returns both on installed cost and operating cost that provide significant reductions in GHG emissions.”

van der Weerd added that Armstrong is committed to making the building HVAC energy upgrades cash-flow-positive for building owners from the very beginning.
