Johnson Controls will cooperate with Students In Free Enterprise, China to offer a platform for Chinese college students to develop leadership and teamwork.

Topics on environmental protection and sustainable development will first be brought into SIFE's programs in 2008-2009. Over 80 SIFE teams will work on the topics; and best ones will get the chance to participate in a competition on environmental protection and sustainable development sponsored by Johnson Controls.

James Hulbert, regional leadership development director at Johnson Controls, Asia-Pacific, commented that through the cooperation with SIFE, Johnson Controls has extended its leadership development program and sustainable development to colleges, enabling students to know how to become successful and responsible leaders. It is a win-win-win situation for society, the company, and the students, he added.

Funded by financial contributions from corporations, entrepreneurs, foundations, government agencies, and individuals, SIFE is a global non-profit organization active in more than 40 countries. SIFE establishes student teams on university campuses who are challenged to develop community outreach projects that embrace SIFE's five educational topics – market economics, success skills, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and business ethics.
