Johnson Controls recognized for sustainability

Johnson Controls has been recognized by sustainability investment firm RobecoSAM as a 2013 Bronze Class Sustainability Leader in its annual Sustainability Yearbook. In collaboration with KPMG, an audit, tax, and advisory firm, RobecoSAM annually rates companies based on their sustainability performance.

Johnson Controls was one of two companies recognized with RobecoSAM’s Bronze Class sustainability rating and one of four companies recognized as a sustainability leader in the Auto Parts & Tires sector. Companies receiving a score within a range of 5% to 10% of the Sector Leader receive the RobecoSAM Bronze Class distinction. The company has received Gold Class ratings in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011; and a Silver Class rating in 2012. Johnson Controls is the only North American firm among the sustainability leaders in its sector.

Each year, the world’s largest 3,000 companies, as reflected in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index, are invited to participate in SAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment. Only the top-scoring 15% of the companies in each of the 58 sectors assessed are eligible for inclusion in The Sustainability Yearbook. The RobecoSAM results provide the basis for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes.

The sector-specific environmental criteria used for the Auto Parts & Tires ranking include climate strategy, emission products, environmental policy/management system, and CO2 from logistics. The ranking also includes human capital development, stakeholder engagement, standards for suppliers, and talent attraction and retention.
