Sharing Expertise and Facilitating Progress

Launched in April 2010, the Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (CEES) was created by Ingersoll Rand to further drive energy efficiency and sustainability into our innovation pipeline, manufacturing operations and employee education initiatives.

About CEES

Priorities for Environmental Progress - Sharing Insights and Fresh Ideas That Bring Sustainable Change
Ingersoll Rand advances global and national environmental actions via its unprecedented Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (CEES) initiative. At the CEES, we understand the challenges communities face in an increasingly energy and carbon constrained world. By creating an open dialogue among stakeholders and opinion leaders, we will better understand how to reduce our own carbon footprint while helping our customers meet their toughest environmental challenges. To do this, we focus on technologies, policies, and behaviors that affect our company and our customers. The CEES team of product experts and industry thought-leaders provides integrated education, advocacy and diverse solutions for the building construction industry, policy-makers and consumers.
