A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
At Johnson Controls, we constantly strive to ensure environmental responsibility, and sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. With facilities that employ world-class technology and best practices globally, our manufacturing and recycling efforts have set industry benchmarks for health, safety and environmental performance.
Our dedication to sustainability is evidenced by our innovations in the advanced battery industry for hybrid and electric vehicles. We also provide the aftermarket with the latest technological developments, helping our customers save energy, reduce pollution and fuel consumption, and recycle more.
Johnson Controls is an active leader in sustainable practices and initiatives that have a broader impact on the world. Our environmental stewardship, which is evidenced by our waste reduction and other responsible manufacturing practices, has been an important part of our corporate responsibilities since day one. Today, that commitment is at the heart of our ecosteps® program, which promotes proper disposal and recycling of used lead-acid batteries.
We are committed to continually minimising our environmental impact by improving the performance of our facilities, promoting sustainability within the supply chain, and using natural resources and commodities responsibly.
Our Delkor distributor in Australia supports battery recycling.
