Johnson Controls Offers Online Tools to Public in Drive for Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency giant Johnson Controls is reaching out to the public with interactive online programs that can be used in homes, schools and businesses as teaching tools.

In presenting the programs, which are free, the Milwaukee-based company is drawing on its experiences and best practices with employees as well as clients, said company leaders in announcing the new online offerings at Greenbuild.

The programs are part of a larger Johnson Controls initiative called Efficiency Now.

The initiative, which includes an online video by the same name, represents an interesting strategy on the part of large highly technical, diversified firms that are industry leaders, but whose lines of work and environmental efforts are perhaps not as widely known or understood by the general public.

The centerpiece of the Johnson Controls initiative is greenprint, a joint project between Johnson Controls and the National Resources Defense Council.

The online tool is intended to show how everyday actions affect the planet and identify what visitors to the site can do to improve their energy efficiency and help the environment.
