  2. $500 million investment in product-related research and development over the next five years to fund the long-term reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; and
  3. 35 percent reduction in the greenhouse gas footprint of the company’s office buildings, manufacturing facilities and fleet by 2020.

Lamach unveiled the commitment on September 22, 2014, as part of the 2014 CGI Annual Meeting and United Nations Climate Summit. More details on Ingersoll Rand's Climate Commitment here.
