Everyone, everywhere, every day

What we do every day at Johnson Controls makes the world more productive, more secure and more sustainable. Creating winning solutions for our customers is the key to winning in the marketplace. How we do it matters because winning doesn’t matter without integrity. That’s why Integrity First is the first among our values.

Our values are the starting point for everything we do, everywhere we do it. They remind us—and others—who we are, what we stand for and how we get things done. They are our inspiration and our guide. That’s why this, the Johnson Controls Code of Ethics, is called “Values First.”

Why our values come first

Johnson Controls has built a reputation over 130 years as a company that can be trusted to keep our promises and to deliver value for our customers and other stakeholders.

This reputation is our responsibility, no matter what our role at the Company. Our individual choices and actions have a direct impact on Johnson Controls’ ability to meet the expectations of our customers, investors and other stakeholders. Even though we’re 120,000 people, supporting many brands and functions around the globe, we win as One Team. Our choices and behaviors need to support a culture of trust and respect as we help each other to do our best work.

That is why we have Values First, our Code of Ethics. It sets expectations for behaviors and guides us toward achieving the best outcomes for ourselves and all our stakeholders. It is a practical, easy-to-use resource, which shows us how to put our shared values into action. When our values drive the right behaviors, everyone wins.
