Johnson Controls, a global multi-industrial company with established core businesses in the automotive, building, and energy storage industries, has announced that Corporate Knights has again put the company on its 2014 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations Index. The Global 100 is an annual project and inclusion on the list is limited to a select group of the top 100 large-cap companies in the world. The Global 100 is recognised as the gold standard in corporate sustainability analysis and ranking. Companies named to the Global 100 are the top overall sustainability performers in their respective industrial sectors.
“Our selection is due to the hard work of our 170,000 employees around the globe who recognise the importance of sustainability in their work,” said Alex Molinaroli, chairman and chief executive officer of Johnson Controls. “Sustainability is at the heart of what we do for our customers and the communities we serve.”
Johnson Controls has been named to this elite list four times since inception in 2005.
“We are pleased to see the inclusion of Johnson Controls on the 2014 Global 100 Index. Corporate Knights congratulates Johnson Controls on being the top ranked U.S.-based automobile and components company on the list in 2014,” said Toby Heaps, chief executive officers of Corporate Knights Inc.
