Carrier Corp. has joined the recently founded Green Mechanical Council.

The council says its mission is to educate the public about the benefits and value of environmentally conscious mechanical systems. The group also aims to bring these concepts into the mainstream for new construction and existing-building upgrade decisions.

The new organization also looks to work with government agencies to develop standards for environmentally sustainable mechanical systems, as well as provide resources to developers and manufacturers of green products to encourage continuous improvement of their products and systems.

Carrier is one of the founding members of the Green Mechanical Council. Other founding members include HVAC Excellence, the Mechanical Contractors Association of America, Abco Refrigeration, Watts Radiant, the United Association, Legend Valve, Floor Heat Co., Ferris State University, Common Ground, Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation, and the Mechanical Service Contractors of America.
