Our Environmental Sustainability Approach

ealthy people need a healthy planet. In fact, the World Health Organization states that there’s an “urgent need” to invest in strategies to reduce environmental risks in our cities, homes and workplaces, where such investments cannot only reduce health burdens associated with environmental conditions, but also lead to immediate savings in healthcare costs. This means that to create healthier societies, we must have an unwavering commitment to preserving our planet and the vital resources upon which we all rely, today and in the future.

Our Credo, written in 1943, and our aspiration of advancing health for everyone, everywhere, are at the heart of our commitment to environmental stewardship. We have a longstanding commitment to environmental health including two decades of public climate commitments. Johnson & Johnson’s new climate goals build on the legacy and achievement of our previous efforts, while accelerating action as part of the larger movement by the private sector, along with governments and civil society, to ramp up the ambition and implementation of climate goals during this new UN Decade of Action.

Our commitment to making a difference extends beyond our own operations. We are taking action to make the planet healthier—finding partners, change advocates and fellow visionaries to help us unlock change at the rate and scale needed to make better health a reality for more people, in more places.
