Johnson Controls, IFMA to Release Third Annual Energy Efficiency Report

Johnson Controls Inc. and the International Facility Management Association present results today of their annual survey of North American business leaders on the subject of energy efficiency.

The Energy Efficiency Indicator research project is the third since 2007 -- and the first to be conducted during such turbulent economic times.

More than 1,400 business professionals were queried for this year's survey.

Highlights of the research findings include:

• Eighty-five percent of executives believe significant legislation mandating energy efficiency and/or carbon reduction is likely within two years.
• Forty-five percent of business leaders say improving energy efficiency in their buildings is their top strategy to meet carbon reduction commitments.
A presentation of the findings is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. CST today. Featured speakers are include to C. David Myers, corporate vice president as well as the president of Building Efficiency for Johnson Controls; Don Albinger, Johnson Controls' vice president of renewable energy; Clay Nesler, Johnson Controls' vice president of global energy and sustainability; and Don Young, IFMA vice president of communications.
