This case study reveals how Johnson Controls has made “creating a sustainable world” a central element of its corporate vision.
It explores how Johnson Controls incorporated sustainability into its core values, and how the company has been executing its sustainability strategy through a combination of centralized oversight and decentralized autonomy. The authors explain how the company’s actions in this area map up against the five dimensions of high performance: growth, profitability, positioning for the future, longevity and consistency.
It is great to see a company like Johnson Controls have such a great stake in sustainable development. I recommend everyone here on DC to take a read through this interesting case study. Being a slow reader, I'm only mid way through but so far the information I have read has been very interesting and valuable. I particularly enjoyed reading the snippet on the construction of the Johnson Controls lead acid battery plant in China.
