“(Your career) doesn’t have to look a certain way, it doesn’t have to look like the traditional career..”

Maria Blase on Green Connections Radio


Transportation and buildings are the two largest energy consumers and they’re changing every day. Listen to Maria Blase, President of Ingersoll Rand’s Trane HVAC and Transport business for Latin America discuss how they succeed with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson.

You’ll hear:

  • How “behavior of the building” can be managed to reduce energy costs as much as 30%, leveraging data and storage.
  • How new transportation systems leverage data to ensure that food and pharmaceuticals stay at consistent temperatures to their destination.
  • How they prioritize innovation dollars to serve customers.
  • How to help employees stay engaged in this work.
  • And career tips including this:

“It doesn’t have to look a certain way, it doesn’t have to look like the traditional career…So, giving yourself that break, you are much more likely to be able to maneuver whatever is going on in your professional as well as your personal life.”  Maria Blase on Green Connections Radio.
