Ingersoll Rand Employees Unite for Earth Day

Each year for Earth Day, Ingersoll Rand employees from around the globe unite to give back to our shared plant and, in 2022, they volunteered over 1,500 hours to their communities and Mother Earth. During the month of April more than 1,300 employees acted locally and thought globally with a variety of communal activities, including planting trees, collecting waste, conserving energy and more.


Driven to action behind this year’s theme to “Invest in Our Planet,” Ingersoll Rand employees across six continents spent the day making the following contributions*:

  • 3,791 trees planted
  • 975.2536 kWH saved
  • 3,252 pounds of waste collected (1,472 pounds of which was recycled)
 

In addition to Ingersoll Rand’s award-winning sustainability programs, practices and products, employees are empowered and encouraged to find ways to Make Life Better for their fellow co-workers, customers and communities.
