Ingersoll Rand Named To 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability World And North America Indices

Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, was selected for the 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices in recognition of the company’s economic, environmental and social performance. This is the third consecutive year that Ingersoll Rand has been listed on both indices.

“Our placement on the Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices is a testament to our efforts to embed sustainability into the fabric of our company, reduce our operational footprint, and deliver on our mission to help customers achieve greater energy efficiency through innovative solutions,” said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer of Ingersoll Rand. “Our communities and customers are facing significant challenges brought about by increased urbanization, resource scarcity and desire to be more competitive. Ingersoll Rand is well positioned to help meet these global challenges with creative solutions and services.”

Ingersoll Rand has set and publicly announced aggressive sustainability goals and is making significant progress against these goals. Details on this progress can be found in the company’s 2012 Sustainability Report. Further, the company continues to embed sustainability into the product development process, while engaging thousands of our employee volunteers who participate in global Green Team activities.

“Because the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices reflect the ongoing and increased efforts of our peer companies to achieve best in class performance, it challenges us to stay focused and ahead of the curve in order to continue to improve,” said W. Scott Tew, executive director, Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (CEES) at Ingersoll Rand. “For us, it means we must engage all of our employees in our efforts from more than 130 volunteer global Green Teams actively working to optimize our facilities to thousands of engineers who are incorporating sustainable design principles across the life cycle of our products.”
