In October 2014, WRI and Johnson Controls merged Johnson Controls’ Institute for Building Efficiency into the WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities. The Buildings Initiative is a multi-year partnership and builds on the deep building efficiency expertise and experience of Johnson Controls and the track record of successful cities engagement at World Resources Institute’s EMBARQ program. One of the flagship activities of the Building Efficiency Initiative is to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Energy for All Building Efficiency Accelerator Platform as it seeks to double the rate of energy efficiency improvement globally by 2030.

By working with partners and supporting national and city governments seeking to implement building efficiency, the WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities will identify and support innovative approaches to finance, provide information on best practices and performance metrics, and support broader urban initiatives such as distributed energy systems and planning that links building efficiency and transit planning.
