“Johnson Controls fully supports the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and we encourage Congress and the White House to come together to pass this legislation. The inclusion of energy efficiency programs and infrastructure funding will significantly improve access to digital technologies, reduce carbon emissions, and save taxpayers money. This is a great first step to address climate change while creating jobs and growing our economy. We at Johnson Controls stand ready to support these initiatives with our efficient buildings equipment and our OpenBlue technology — a fully open architecture platform — that can drive 50 percent and more in improvement in energy efficiency and corresponding carbon emissions. We know that decarbonization of buildings is part of the solution as buildings represent some 40 percent of global emissions. Reducing energy waste from buildings also saves money, so there is every reason to accelerate action.”
The $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is a critical step in implementing President Biden’s Build Back Better vision. The Plan makes transformational and historic investments in clean transportation infrastructure, clean water infrastructure, universal broadband infrastructure, clean power infrastructure, remediation of legacy pollution, and climate resilience.
