Singapore – Johnson Controls (JCI), the global leader for smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, marks its 40th year in Singapore with continued commitment to digital transformation as a key enabler for Singapore’s sustainability goals for the built environment.

Johnson Controls in Singapore serves as the regional hub in Asia Pacific with three locations and over 800 employees. Focusing on making the future more productive and sustainable through intelligent and smart buildings, Johnson Controls’ suite of smart building products and solutions have been installed in more than 40 percent of commercial buildings in Singapore.

“Johnson Controls is grateful to have been part of our customers’ journey to achieving green buildings and is now ramping up towards super low energy and net zero buildings. Globally, we have nearly 140 years of experience in the built environment and are involved in many iconic projects – the latest being the World Cup stadiums in Qatar where a custom digital solution powered by our OpenBlue digital platform creates one unified command and control center for all eight stadiums,” said Anu Rathninde, President, Asia Pacific, Johnson Controls. “In Singapore, the conducive business environment and progressive policies have enabled us to experiment with newer solutions and models. This is one of the first markets in Asia Pacific where we launched our Johnson Controls capital financing that facilitates innovative as-a-service models such as healthy air as-a-service and net zero buildings as-a-service.”

Incorporated in Singapore in 1982, Johnson Controls was present in the country prior to that through its various brands including YORK for heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning products as well as Tyco for security products. The company has received numerous awards and accolades such as Singapore Green Building Council for its YORK YZ chiller in the green building solutions product category.

“Johnson Controls is no stranger to Singapore’s sustainability agenda and the Singapore Green Plan 2030. As a company we have committed to achieve net zero emissions by 2040, ten years ahead of the Paris Agreement, with science-based targets to reduce our operational emissions by 55 percent and customers’ emissions by 16 percent by 2030. In Singapore, we have actively participated in the built environment ecosystem, including through partnerships with companies and educational institutions, which will serve as the pipeline to build up talents and capacity in parallel, especially in this brave, new, green economy,” said Peter Ferguson, General Manager, Southeast Asia, Johnson Controls.

“Congratulations to Johnson Controls on its 40th anniversary in Singapore. Our partnership has grown from strength to strength over the years, with the company making significant contributions to Singapore’s built environment sector in the areas of sustainability, talent development and innovation. We look forward to closer collaboration as Johnson Controls creates and drives, from Singapore, exciting solutions for smart and sustainable buildings in the region,” said Tan Kong Hwee, Executive Vice President, EDB.
