Johnson Controls Scales Up Energy Efficiency in its Supply Chains

ClintonJohnson Controls plans to scale up its program to help small- and medium-sized suppliers reduce energy use in their manufacturing facilities.

The company already has an existing supplier efficiency pilot program in which company energy experts visit the plants of their suppliers and train their in-house teams to identify and implement low-cost/no-cost energy efficiency improvement measures. The supplier training follows an industry practice known as “energy hunts,” conducted for years by Johnson Controls at its own manufacturing plants around the world. Suppliers participating in the program typically achieve energy savings of 5 to 10 percent with less than a two-year payback on their investments.

As part of Johnson Controls’ Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action, the company will support 60 additional suppliers over the next three years. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) will provide overall coordination of the commitment including recruiting manufacturing partners, gathering program results and reporting progress.
