Strategic Urban Vertical Markets

Reciprocal socioeconomic sustainability business strategy at the community level

Johnson Controls is a multi-industrial buildings products and technology company with offices and branch locations worldwide. For over 135 years environmental sustainability has been the cornerstone of our business value proposition. Yet, we recognize the need to take a broader view of business solutions built on the premise of mutually-beneficial economic development in some of our most disparately impacted cities and communities. This purpose-led vision expands our focus to social and economic sustainability defined by our new Urban Vertical Markets business model.

We see the whole picture

Johnson Controls knows a bit about FUBU (For us by us). We know the key to eradicating inequities among underutilized groups is to ensure the products and services we offer are produced, delivered and serviced by those most likely to contract and hire within their communities. Conversely, when corporations like ours can also partner with businesses within these communities to grow businesses together it creates a self-sustainable businesses cycle of market vitality and growth to support strong private and government infrastructures – 360 degrees. We call it the Power of Business to Diversity, or B2D.

Seeing the Whole Picture in Urban Markets Allowed Johnson Controls to Develop the Whole Socioeconomic Strategy.

Gone are the days where global corporations can afford to develop business growth strategies that look beyond the social and economic disparities of certain segments of the communities they serve. We have developed an approach to reciprocal business development that creates a self-sustainable virtuous circle of success for the communities in the urban marketplace.

A recognized leader in supplier diversity

Johnson Controls is recognized in the industry for being one of the top minority business development companies. We have twice won Corporation of the Year by the National Minority Supplier Development Council, along with multiple regional awards for supplier diversity. Capacity-building for greater opportunities is key the growth of our diverse suppliers and integral to Johnson Controls’ growth. Measurement and accountability of our program performance is important to our customers. Which is why we have developed protocols for automating direct diverse spend attribution at scale.

Knowing What and When to Request Supplier Diversity Reporting from Your Prime Suppliers

Many corporations often omit clear supplier diversity reporting requirement from their high-volume prime suppliers bidding and project performance requirements. This results in reporting that is requested either too late in the process, or not at all. This can result in misunderstandings as well as missed opportunities to achieve their goals for supplier diversity managers and leaders on both sides. Johnson Controls offers one-on-one consultation with current and potential customers that maximize direct diverse spend attribution for their projects.
