In Focus: Creative Funding to Enable Sustainability
Thursday, August 19, 2021
Many building managers have realized that — in the same way that they have a responsibility to keep their occupants safe and healthy — they also have a responsibility to keep the planet safe and healthy. In fact, Johnson Controls found in its 2020 Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey that 65 percent of participating organizations have an internal or public goal for energy or carbon reduction.
A global leader for smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, Johnson Controls has delivered more than 3,000 energy-savings projects globally that reduced carbon emissions by more than 30.6 million metric tons and achieved $6.6 billion in energy savings and operating costs. A common challenge that organizations faced was how to implement the necessary building upgrades to achieve these goals when budgets are stretched thin. With a good strategy and infrastructure partner, however, it is possible to get the best of both worlds: reducing carbon footprint while keeping operational costs low.
