MILWAUKEE, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls, a global diversified company in the building and automotive industries, today announced its inclusion on both the World and North America Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for 2013.

This is the ninth consecutive year Johnson Controls has been named to both DJSI indices.
