Johnson Controls Celebrates World Environment Day by Providing Free Energy Efficiency Tools
New report and tool kit assists all countries in doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvement by 2030
MILWAUKEE – On World Environment Day, Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, launches Driving Transformation to Energy Efficient Buildings: Policies and Actions . This tool kit is designed to help the estimated 6.5 billion people who will live and work in urban buildings by 2050 breath cleaner air, be more comfortable, save money, and reduce carbon emissions.
The report includes a Building Efficient Policy Assessment Tool, presented in Colombia earlier this year, which delivers a simple framework to help governments set policy priorities especially in developing countries that will account for 85 percent of the world’s rising energy demand.
“We are launching a step-by-step process for countries to follow to help increase the rate of energy efficiency improvement in buildings,” said Iain Campbell, vice president and general manager, Global Energy and WorkPlace Solutions, Building Efficiency, Johnson Controls. “Today, buildings consume 40 percent of the world’s energy. The program outlined in this free tool kit will help businesses and governments move rapidly to adopt policies and programs that will make a positive impact on the environment while reducing costs.”
The report was completed over the past 13 months with help from global partner organizations the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, the Center for Clean Air Policy, the World Green Building Council and the U.S. Green Building Council.
