individuals, business owners and governments –
is the environment, particularly the responsible
growth as use of new
use of energy. Emerson’s ability to pioneer

substantial increases in the efficiency of global

dential systems are more than 60 percent more
efficient than they were two decades ago. These
improvements equate to the power generated
by 17 one-gigawatt power plants.
As we continue to drive forward, Emerson
Climate Technologies is partnering with refrig-
eration and air conditioning manufacturers to
phase out ozone-depleting, chlorine-based
refrigerants for new systems in the United States
by 2010. The latest generation of Copeland
Residential systems are more than 60%
more efficient than they were two decades
ago. These improvements equate to the power
generated by 17 one-gigawatt power plants.
Scroll compressors are engineered for optimum
performance with today’s more environmen-
tally responsible R-410A refrigerants while also
providing the unmatched reliability that has
become synonymous with Emerson.
Superior technology and industry leadership
provide a strong foundation for global growth
as well. In China, Emerson is working closely
with both government and industry to develop
energy-efficiency standards for that country.
We are also supplying the Chinese market with
a wide range of energy-responsible solutions.
Emerson engineers in Suzhou, China, for
example, are designing and building next-
generation Copeland Digital Scroll solutions to
transform the Asian air conditioning market.
At the same time, Emerson is working closely
with local manufacturers to create more
effective, efficient and environmentally friendly
heating products for the half-billion people who
live in China’s northern region.

There are no simple answers to the world’s
energy issues and needs. So as the innovators
in Emerson Climate Technologies continue
their quest for heating and cooling solutions
that require less electricity and reduce global
warming, they collaborate with engineers in
other Emerson businesses to understand how
motors, ﬂow devices and controls impact the
At the same time, Emerson partners closely
with customers, industries, governments
and regulators to create practical and viable
standards and solutions that all parties can
follow to responsibly manage the world’s
resources. Emerson leadership.
