Our Johnson Controls APAC HQ saves 4.8 million liters of water each year. Find out how.
Building well-being design is essential in mega-cities like Shanghai, where dense urban environments challenge the way the city's occupants work and achieve healthy lifestyles. At the same time, the Chinese government is making concerted efforts to fight climate change and hence, there is an equally important need to integrate building well-being design along with energy savings. Our Asia Pacific headquarters in Shanghai achieves all this, effortlessly combining energy efficiency, building well-being design, and smart technology.
Our Asia Pacific Headquarters is the first building in China to receive all three top sustainability certifications: USGBC LEED Platinum, China Green Building Design Label Three Star Certification, and IFC-World Bank EDGE Certification. The building generates 44 percent savings in overall energy consumption compared to the local market standard, and saves 4.8 million litres of water annually via grey water recycling and storm water recapture facilities.
The headquarters showcases a full range of smart building solutions. Its sustainable design includes a Central Plant, renewable energy and intelligent lighting, the Metasys® Building Automation System, and other advanced technologies. Our headquarters is also equipped with hybrid and electric vehicle charging stations which enable employees to commute with a smaller carbon footprint.
