Johnson Controls releases global survey of 3,500 building owners and operators
Johnson Controls, company that offers commercial building owners solutions that increase energy efficiency, on June 27th, released a global survey. During the 2012 Johnson Controls Energy Efficiency Indicator 3,500 building owners and operators around the world were surveyed.
Based on the results there have been a 34-point increase in building owners who depend on energy management to drive operational efficiency, bringing the total percentage to eighty-five.
Real estate owners value the energy efficiency because of the public image it can create of them and also the fact that energy efficient buildings are higher in value than the ones not too energy efficient. And of course, we can't forget the fact that energy efficient buildings are also more cost-efficient.
"Building owners are investing in energy efficiency because they recognize the financial payback," said Dave Myers, president of Johnson Controls, Building Efficiency.
Johnson Controls is a global company that offers services as well as products to building owners to help turn their buildings more energy efficient. They also work with automotive batteries. Currently they have around 162 000 employees in more than 1300 locations.
