The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored Carrier Corp. with its Best-of-the-Best Stratospheric Ozone Protection award in recognition of the company's achievements in helping restore the Earth's protective ozone layer. Carrier is a unit of United Technologies Corp. 
   
The awards presentation coincides with the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Montreal Protocol, which calls for a global elimination of ozone depleting substances such as chlorofluorcarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) used in air-conditioning and refrigeration products.

Geraud Darnis, president of Carrier Corp., said, "Carrier has been an industry leader in environmental stewardship for decades. This award is yet another testament to our ability to be an environmental champion."

In 1994, Carrier became the first company in the industry to phase-out CFCs from air-conditioning systems worldwide -- two years ahead of requirements in the U.S. and 16 years ahead of mandates in developing countries. IIn 1996, Carrier was first to offer non-ozone depleting commercial and residential systems. Since then, Carrier has sold approximately 3 million non- ozone depleting Puron residential systems in North America. In 2005, Carrier introduced the Evergreen 23XRV variable speed screw chiller using non-ozone depleting HFC-134a refrigerant. This commercial product was a first by Carrier, employing new technology to achieve world-class energy efficiency with zero compromise on ozone protection.

Best-of-the-Best award nominees were evaluated by the U.S. EPA staff and judged by an international panel representing industry, government, and non-governmental organizations.
