Trane Sponsors 2007 U.S. Green Buildings Council's Greenbuild Conference

Piscataway, N.J., (October 8, 2007) – Trane, a global provider of indoor comfort systems and comprehensive facility solutions, is reaffirming its commitment to green communities through its platinum sponsorship of the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Greenbuild will be held on November 7-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“Two thirds of green buildings come from the energy efficiency and indoor air quality aspects of commercial and residential HVAC,” said John W. Conover IV, president of Trane’s commercial business in the Americas.

“That’s why it’s critical for businesses like Trane to support the mission of the U.S. Green Building Council and Greenbuild. We must find ways to advance building technologies and solutions that accelerate the design and construction of green communities.”

For the second consecutive year, Trane is sponsoring LEED for Schools education sessions and workshops. For the first time, Trane will expand its commitment by sponsoring “LEED for Homes” educational programs. LEED for Homes is USGBC’s newly introduced rating system for the residential sector.

Trane will be hosting:

  • Full-day LEED for Schools workshop
  • LEED for Homes National Launch Reception & Celebration
  • LEED for Homes Education session: The Field Perspective

Trane provides indoor comfort systems and comprehensive facility solutions for residential, commercial and industrial buildings, including energy efficient HVAC products, systems and services that maintain occupant comfort while reducing energy consumption, saving money, cleaning the air and improving indoor and outdoor environments.

“The average household will spend almost $2,100 on home energy costs in 2007, with heating and cooling costs accounting for about one-half of the typical residential energy bill ,” said Dave Pannier, president of Trane’s residential systems business. “When installing an energy efficient HVAC system, consumers can do something responsible to the environment and good for the pocketbook.”

Trane has long been a leader in manufacturing and promoting environmentally responsible products such as Trane Building Services™, a full suite of energy services for the lifecycle of a building; Trane's EarthWise™ CenTraVac™ system, the most efficient on the market today; and the Trane CleanEffects™ whole-house air filtration system.

Greenbuild is the annual meeting place for the green building industry. During the three-day event, more than 20,000 green building industry professionals will learn about the latest developments in green building design and construction, including project financing and building management.
