Commitment to Action

Scaling Energy Efficiency in Corporate Supply Chains

Commitment by

American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Johnson Controls, Inc.

In 2015, Johnson Controls, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), and partners commit to implement a supplier efficiency program with 60 of Johnson Controls’ Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) suppliers over the next three years. The commitment includes additional manufacturers recruited by ACEEE and other partners that will implement similar programs with at least 30 of their SME suppliers. This commitment scales up a Johnson Controls pilot program that sends energy champions to train SME suppliers on low-cost energy efficiency best practices. To participate suppliers will undertake at least one day of training and an on-site assessment, and agree to provide energy use information, make personnel available for training, implement at least one improvement identified during assessment, and provide project completion verification.
