JCI and Trane win Terra Carta sustainability award

UK: Johnson Controls and Trane Technologies are among 45 global companies to have been awarded the inaugural Terra Carta Seal, a sustainability initiative launched by the Prince of Wales.

The Terra Carta Seal recognises global companies which are driving innovation and demonstrating their commitment to, and momentum towards, the creation of genuinely sustainable markets. It is being awarded to companies whose ambitions are aligned with those of the Terra Carta, a recovery plan for nature, people and planet, launched in January 2021.

The Prince of Wales met with CEOs to celebrate their award and commitment to the battle against climate change, discuss the challenges individual organisations and industries face and examine solutions and the necessary action organisations must take to accelerate further the transition.

“It is both an honour and a privilege to receive this recognition from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for our decades-long commitment to sustainability,” said Johnson Controls chairman and CEO George Oliver.

Johnson Controls has reduced its emissions intensity by more than 70% since 2002. The company also claims to have helped its customers save more than 30.6 million tons of CO2 globally and $6.6 billion through guaranteed operational and energy savings.
