CCAC launches Green Footprints Movement

In a bid to strengthen its commitment to leading a sustainable future, air conditioning and refrigeration solutions provider Concepcion-Carrier Air Conditioning Company recently launched the Green Footprints Movement. 

Concepcion-Carrier Air Conditioning Company (CCAC) recently launched the Green Footprints Movement, the company’s advocacy to create greater awareness of environmental footprint reduction.

Concepcion; CIC executive vice president for Business Development Rafael C. Hechanova, Jr.; and CCAC director of consumer Solutions Group Harold Pernikar, Jr.

The Green Footprints Movement serves as CCAC’s clarion call to the public to become green advocates. It seeks to galvanize the general population into taking action towards reducing their environment footprint. 

“As the most encompassing issue facing us today, climate change must be everyone’s agenda,” stressed Concepcion Industrial Corporation chief executive officer Raul Joseph Concepcion. “We aim to strengthen our commitment to a sustainable future by driving greater awareness and understanding of climate change and global warming among our consumers and other stakeholders,” he added.

With the Green Footprints Movement, the company creates awareness through consumer education that is focused on making information on environmental impact reduction available to a wider audience.

“Our goal is to provide the public with the knowledge of how they can make small, practical changes that will have significant effect on their own footprints, such as the responsible use of electricity,” said CCAC director and head of Consumer Solutions Group Harold Pernikar Jr.

“This consciousness, we believe, will lead them to make environmental impact an important consideration in everything they do or use,” Pernikar continued.

Aside from information dissemination, CCAC also recognizes that the public must have access to environment-friendly products – something that the company has been striving to provide for years. 

CCAC was the first Philippine cooling manufacturer that converted its refrigerators into using environment-friendly refrigerants back in 1995. And it is once again leading the industry through its “greener” air conditioners.

“Ninety-six percent of our air conditioning products have already been converted to using environmentally responsive refrigerants, and we expect to make a 100 percent product conversion within the year,” informed Pernikar. 

He also shared that the switch is being made ahead of the global deadlines set by the Montreal Protocol, which established a timeline for the eventual elimination of ozone-depleting substances.

“Part of the private sector’s responsibility goes beyond compliance with standards and regulations. It’s rising to the challenge of offering practical, green products through constant innovation and investment,” adds Pernikar.

By enabling the public to become more aware that each and every action they make today can have lasting effects on the planet’s future, CIC and its subsidiary CCAC aspire to empower the public to make smarter and greener choices. 

“As we enjoin people to commit to reducing their collective environmental footprint through the Green Footprints Movement, we believe we can create a significant impact towards creating a better, safer environment for the next generations,” enthused Concepcion.
