Distinguished Sustainability Lecture Series


At United Technologies Corporation, sustainability leadership is something that comes naturally. Our brands have pioneered industries, and a focus on sustainability and preserving natural resources has endured as a guiding principle.

Of course, leadership isn’t about what you can do on your own — it’s about working together for something greater.

Launched in 2011, the Distinguished Sustainability Lecture Series brings together two of our pioneering brands, Otis and Carrier, in a collaborative program with international universities and communities. The lecture series is designed to convene sustainability thought leaders and international building industry experts to transform the built environment. Through discussions of the economic and health motivations for green building and future sustainable building trends, we are striving to make our world a better place to live today — and for generations to come. Since its inception, the lecture series has reached thousands of professionals in emerging markets around the world, including Brazil, China, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
