Where we focus for maximum societal impact

Now more than ever, businesses are expected to lead in the present and drive progress for the future. For more than 130 years, Johnson & Johnson has aimed to create a healthier world.

Today, as the world’s largest and most broadly based healthcare company, we have a unique ability to apply our expertise and partnering power to help solve some of the most challenging global health issues.

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy focuses on areas where we are uniquely positioned to achieve the greatest impact – championing global health equity, empowering our employees and advancing environmental health.

Leading with accountability and innovation is foundational to these efforts and essential to creating economic, environmental and social value for all those we serve.
