As a company that strives to make the world a better place, we take action to minimize our environmental footprint, to foster the next generation of STEM leaders and to fund investments that improve lives in the communities where we do business. We do this because it’s the right thing to do.
In addition to the many things we do collectively to make the world a better place, I’m extremely proud of the fact that tens of thousands of UTC employees volunteer their own time to make things better in their communities or to help someone in need.
Our work takes many forms. From the mentors who are supporting 262 FIRST teams in four countries, to the Engineers Without Borders volunteers who established 83 eLearning Centers to provide computer and internet access to 20,000+ students in India, or the employees who just last month volunteered 1,000 hours to clear fallen trees and debris following the devastating tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia.
Time and time again, I’m amazed at the collective impact our team has made on individual lives around the world — and how we come together as a family in times of need. It’s really moving to see how UTC and the communities come together in a time of need.
In honor of National Volunteer Week here in the U.S., I’d like to take a moment to thank every UTC employee who volunteers to make things better for a community, a cause or a neighbor in need. It makes me proud to know they are a colleague and fellow UTC employee.
Thank you to our volunteers for their time, commitment and passion to the causes we care so much about. To learn more about UTC’s social impact, click here.
