Ensuring Corporate Ethics and Sustainability

Johnson Controls takes ethics and integrity seriously. Our commitment to doing the right thing benefits communities and the world — while improving our shareholder value, reputation, productivity and employee retention. Learn about the policies and initiatives that govern the way we do business.

Integrity and Ethics

We were recently named a World’s Most Ethical Company and one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens. Plus, we’re a member of the U.N. Global Compact, which recognizes corporate performance on environmental and social issues. This recognition is due in part to:

Global Environment Sustainability Council

This council brings together top leaders from throughout the company to help Johnson Controls:

  • Reduce our environmental footprint.
  • Gain a competitive advantage through environmentally responsible products and services.
  • Improve the eco-efficiency of the supply chain.
Materiality Assessment

This 2015 assessment helped us to:

  • Solicit the views and priorities of both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Assess stakeholders’ environmental, social and governance priorities.
  • Identify gaps between our actions and stakeholder expectations.
  • Prioritize areas for improvement.
Stakeholder Engagement

We believe that the better we understand our stakeholders, the stronger we’ll be as a company. We regularly consult with these stakeholders via meetings, advisory council forums, correspondence and surveys:

  • Employees
  • Customers
  • Suppliers
  • Governments
  • Financial investors
  • Social investors
  • Labor groups
  • Non-Governmental organizations
