Apr. 02 /CSRwire/ - MILWAUKEE, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), today announced the release of its latest Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) online sustainability report. The online matrix provides a detailed review of the company's financial, environmental and social performance over the past year.


The matrix complements the company's 2008 Business and Sustainability Report, which was released in January and is available in 12 languages. The GRI reporting framework provides companies with a uniform and transparent set of metrics to systematically report on sustainability initiatives and results.

The matrix offers a quick, easily accessible database of the company's results in 2008 across a broad range of topics. Highlights include:

  • Financial performance data detailing the company's 62nd consecutive year of increased sales, 18th consecutive year of increased earnings and 33rd consecutive year of increased dividends;

  • New figures on the impact of the company’s business activities on the environment and society; and

  • Details of the company's partnerships with organizations like the Carbon Disclosure Project, the Student Conservation Association and the United Nations Global Compact

At Johnson Controls, we have been offering our customers more comfortable, safe and sustainable solutions for the past 124 years," said Chuck Harvey, vice president of Diversity and Public Affairs. "As the world's largest energy efficiency provider through the services and equipment we supply to our customers, we are also committed to sustainability in our own organization and live that value every day. We believe the online GRI matrix reflects our current initiatives as well as our long-term commitment to sustainability."

In March, Johnson Controls was ranked 22nd among the 100 Best Corporate Citizens in the United States, by Corporate Responsibility Officer magazine. In the same month, Institutional Investor Magazine cited Johnson Controls as America's Most Shareholder-Friendly Company in the category of consumer - autos and auto parts, for the fourth consecutive year.
