United Technologies Corporation

Our partnership with United Technologies Corporation (UTC) is working on climate solutions that also protect biodiversity and sustain livelihoods through our Conservation Carbon program.

  • In 2007, UTC expanded its partnership with CI in restoring forests in the environmentally critical Mountains of Southwest China biodiversity hotspot. UTC’s reforestation investment now totals $500,000.

UTC’s latest grant of $300,000 – which follows a donation of $200,000 announced last year – enables CI to restore more than 120 hectares, or roughly 300 acres, of degraded lands inside one of the world’s biodiversity “hotspots” for imperiled species. Read the full story.

  • In 2006, UTC began supporting CI's efforts to restore critically endangered forests within the Mountains of Southwest China through a $200,000 grant stretching over two years. UTC’s grant directly supports a pilot reforestation effort that will replant and improve natural regeneration of native tree species on 102 hectares around the Gao Li Gong Nature Reserve.
