Johnson Controls has pledged to reduce its total U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity per dollar of revenue by 30% from 2002 to 2012. The company has committed to the reduction goal as part of the EPA’s Climate Leaders program, which Johnson Controls joined in 2003.

Climate Leaders is an EPA industry-government partnership that works with companies to develop comprehensive climate change strategies. Partner companies commit to reducing their impact on the global environment by completing a corporatewide inventory of their greenhouse gas emissions based on a quality management system, setting aggressive reduction goals and annually reporting their progress to the EPA. Through program participation, companies create credible records of their accomplishments and receive EPA recognition as corporate environmental leaders. “Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions intensity in partnership with the Climate Leaders program demonstrates our corporatewide commitment to improving the global environment and increasing the efficiency of our operations,” said Stephen A. Roell, CEO of Johnson Controls.

Johnson Controls plans to achieve this reduction goal through a comprehensive action plan that institutes energy efficiency solutions in the company’s U.S. plants and facilities, processes and fleet. Through the EPA audit process, Johnson Controls has verified that it has already made good progress towards achieving this aggressive GHG reduction goal by 2012.
