Exclusive: “There’s a building revolution coming in India,” says CEO of Johnson Controls Global

In the bustling corridors of Johnson Controls, optimism echoes with each step, fueled by the vision of a greener, smarter tomorrow. At the helm stands George Oliver, the Global CEO, his confidence unwavering as he charts a bold course for the company’s future in India.

In an exclusive tête-à-tête with CNBC-TV18, Oliver unveiled the blueprint for Johnson Controls’ ambitious growth trajectory in India. With the country poised for a building revolution, he sees boundless opportunities to revolutionize the way buildings operate, ushering in an era of sustainability and efficiency.

“We create outcomes that ultimately change how buildings operate,” Oliver shared, his passion for driving change evident in every word.

Johnson Controls’ commitment to driving the energy transition in India is palpable, underscored by its Net Zero Buildings Initiative aimed at decarbonizing the nation’s building landscape. Through strategic partnerships, such as with the Mahindra Group, the company aims to leverage technology to combat climate change head-on.

Oliver’s words resonate with urgency as he emphasizes the pivotal role of buildings in global carbon emissions. “Buildings represent 40% of global carbon,” he reiterated, highlighting the significance of Johnson Controls’ mission in combating climate change.

As India grapples with the challenges of rapid urbanization and energy consumption, Johnson Controls stands ready to lead the charge towards a more sustainable future. With three-quarters of India’s anticipated 2040 buildings yet to be built, the time to act is now, Oliver stressed, echoing the sentiments of environmental and economic imperatives.

The company’s deepening commitment to India is evident in its significant expansion of the workforce, a testament to its belief in the country’s potential. “We’ve increased our workforce here by about 20-25% in just the last 18–24 months,” Oliver revealed, highlighting the company’s investment in talent and innovation.

In every endeavor, Johnson Controls is driven by a singular mission: to build a better, brighter future for generations to come. As India embarks on its journey towards sustainability and efficiency, the company stands as a steadfast partner, ready to turn vision into reality, one smart, green building at a time.
