SWORDS, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / September 25, 2023 / Trane Technologies (NYSE:TT), a global climate innovator, is pleased to announce its Cooling Cart Origin Film documentary received two awards at the 44th Annual Telly Awards. The documentary won a Silver Telly Award in the Non-Broadcast: Short Film Documentary category and a Bronze Award in the People's Telly for Non-Broadcast.

The film is a feature story from Operation Possible, Trane Technologies' employee-powered social innovation program that addresses the most pressing social and environmental challenges. Operation Possible harnesses Trane Technologies' global workforce to accelerate innovation for positive change for both people and the planet. The cooling cart is the result of Operation Possible's first challenge and tackles the issues of food loss and hunger.

"Our film focuses on how a single idea from one of our team members - the cooling cart - blossomed into a solution with great potential to reduce food loss, reduce emissions and improve the quality of life for street vendors around the world," said Carrie Ruddy, senior vice president and chief communications and marketing officer, Trane Technologies. "When we launched our employee-powered innovation program, Operation Possible, we knew that powerful storytelling would be an important way to connect people to what's possible and inspire innovation. This award recognizes how a great story can inspire change."

Produced by Trane Technologies' partner, Not Impossible Labs, the film highlights the many challenges street vendors in India face every day and documents the design process used by Trane Technologies' employees to develop and pilot a solution that addresses those challenges.

Operation Possible was recently named a finalist in the Purpose-Driven Consumer Communications Award at this year's Reuters Responsible Business Awards. The cooling cart has also been recognized by Fast Company as one of its 2023 World Changing Ideas, winning in the Developing World Technology category. In addition, it received an honorable mention in the Sustainability/Energy category.
