Thermo King Advancer: 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions
On-the-road and in-use, Advancer results in a 30 percent reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions compared to previous units – contributing significantly to the Trane Technologies’ Gigaton Challenge and 2030 sustainability aspirations. Indeed, Thermo King is part of Trane Technologies. The commitment aims to reduce customers’ carbon emissions by one gigaton – equivalent to the annual emissions of Italy, France and the United Kingdom combined.

«We are pleased to see the Advancer project recognised for its excellence. At Thermo King, our team continues to bring solutions to market that give customers a new standard in transport refrigeration with breakthrough efficiency, quality, and reliability. We’re pushing innovation to its very limit so that customers can take their operations to the next level – and beyond, whilst reducing their own environmental footprint», said Francesco Incalza, president of Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa.
«The Advancer project is a great example of our efficient project management capabilities and our commitment to creating a positive impact for society. This is something we strive to achieve in all our projects. This award complements our earlier industry recognition received for Advancer highlighting the best-in-class manufacturing production and engineering processes including an award for Advancer’s Carbon Neutral Manufacturing, and Engineering Endeavour», continued Mr Incalza.
