3Degrees' large-scale environmental commodity solutions will be offered as part of the Johnson Controls OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings solution

Heating and air conditioning technology firm Johnson Controls will work with large-scale environmental solutions provider 3Degrees to develop ways to help commercial and industrial (C&I) building owners and operators reach lower emissions goals.

They will leverage 3Degrees' large-scale environmental commodity solutions, like Renewable Energy Certificate transactions, long-term renewable energy procurement, carbon credit portfolio management, transportation decarbonization and climate advisory services.

The energy supply services can offered as part of the comprehensive Johnson Controls OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings offering or as a stand-alone service. The OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings solution designs, digitizes and deploys net zero solutions at any stage. It involves goal setting, facility-wide digitalization of distributed energy strategies and renewable energy supply services. Customers pay for the outcomes with a fixed monthly fee.

"The challenge is clear—building emissions currently account for nearly 40% of total global emissions," explained Scott Martin, Vice President and Head of Global Commercial Business at 3Degrees. "It's through partnership, innovation, and steadfast commitment that we drive meaningful decarbonization. This partnership offers customers end-to-end climate solutions to accelerate our collective progress to net zero emissions."

Johnson Controls is working on a number of emissions reduction fronts, including being part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Cold Climate Heat Pump Challenge.
