Ambitious Vision. Measurable Results.

Commitments

Sustainability is at the heart of our business and fundamental to everything that we do as a company. We do what we say we will do and always strive to do more. We are committed to support a healthy, more sustainable planet.

In January of 2021 we announced the following new set of ambitious sustainability commitments including science-based targets and net zero carbon pledge. These build on our history of sustainability leadership in both commitments and results.

Environmental Sustainability Commitments:

  • Set science-based targets consistent with the most ambitious 1.5°C Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scenario
  • Reduce Johnson Controls’ operational emissions by 55 percent and reduce customers’ emissions by 16 percent before 2030
  • Achieve net zero carbon emissions before 2040, in line with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Race to Zero and Business Ambition for 1.5°C criteria
  • Invest 75 percent of new product development R&D in climate-related innovation to develop sustainable products and services
  • Achieve 100 percent renewable electricity usage globally by 2040

Customer and Supply Chain Commitments:

  • Double annual avoided emissions by 2030 through customer use of Johnson Controls OpenBlue digitally enabled products and services
  • Create a supplier sustainability council with cohorts of suppliers, and their tier-one suppliers, and provide suppliers with training on sustainability best practices and OpenBlue digital tools in order to meet ambitious, public sustainability goals
  • Weight sustainability equal to other key metrics in supplier performance evaluations and provide a preference for suppliers with excellent sustainability ratings

Social and Governance Sustainability Commitments:

  • Intends to double the representation of women leaders globally and minority leaders in the United States within five years
  • Launch an initiative to educate the next generation of diverse sustainable building industry leaders, in partnership with HBCUs
  • Include sustainability and diversity goals in senior leaders’ performance assessments, which are linked to executive compensation to drive accountability
  • Launch an initiative focused on underserved markets and increase Johnson Controls’ spend with women and minority owned businesses
