In its Q1 2022 investor letter, ClearBridge Investments Sustainability Leaders Strategy mentioned Trane Technologies plc (NYSE:TT) and explained its insights for the company. Here is what the fund said:
“Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), another energy efficiency play in the industrials sector that should benefit from trends highlighted in the REPowerEU energy security plan, was a top detractor for the quarter, mainly due to continued supply chain headwinds raising costs. We think there is a strong secular tailwind for the cost and emissions savings Trane provides: the company makes products that help reduce energy consumption and emissions for residential and commercial HVAC and transport refrigeration, the minimization of food waste and other perishable goods and the increased productivity for Trane’s customers. Trane estimates ~15%-25% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the world are emitted through HVAC systems and buildings.”
