In every aspect of our business, Johnson Controls seeks to promote the well-being of our communities and our planet. Through global volunteerism and philanthropy, Johnson Controls helps build safe, smart and sustainable communities where our employees live and work.
Leveraging this value of community involvement, we ensure we are world class in our social measures, and this in turn, drives our high-performance culture and leads to exceptional customer outcomes as we build stronger communities.
To ensure a global culture of generosity, we provide strategic programs that integrate community involvement with business goals and drive employee engagement, intentionally drawing a connection between corporate funding and employee volunteerism. We provide resources and strategic support that expands our philanthropic reach and global volunteer efforts, allowing us to live our values.

Johnson Controls supports organizations that provide safety from natural disasters such as floods, fires and hurricanes, and organizations with a mission for safety from violence in the home and neighborhood.
Johnson Controls gives direct support to universities and indirect support to K-12 schools through partnerships with nonprofit organizations whose programs drive student success. We also define arts organizations in the “smart” category, with an understanding that robust arts exposure drives cognitive development and emotional intelligence.
Johnson Controls supports organizations that keep our communities sustainable by meeting basic human needs such as food and shelter, and also supports organizations with a mission to protect our environment.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations member states in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries, in a global partnership.
The United Nations recognizes that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequity, and spur economic growth, all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Johnson Controls uses these goals as a base in the creation of community and philanthropic strategy, and all our work is in support of them. Each organization that Johnson Controls supports within our safe, smart and sustainable categories has a mission tied to one or more of these goals.
