Only U.S. company in its sector to achieve recognition

Submitted by: Johnson Controls, Inc.

Categories: Ratings & Awards, Sustainability

Posted: Feb 21, 2013 – 11:18 AM EST

 

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 21 /CSRwire/ - Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), a global diversified company in the building and automotive industries, today announced that RobecoSAM, a sustainability investment firm, has recognized the company 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 percent to 10 percent 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.

“We are honored to be recognized again by RobecoSAM,” said Charles A. Harvey, vice president of Diversity and Public affairs at Johnson Controls. “Our longstanding commitment to sustainability is driven by our vision and values and is an integral part of Johnson Controls’ businesses and is embraced by our 170,000 employees around the world.”

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 percent 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 include human capital development, stakeholder engagement, standards for suppliers and talent attraction and retention.
