 Select 2014 Highlights

  • Johnson & Johnson leverages its expertise and capabilities in areas of great public health need: improving maternal and newborn survival and health, preventing the spread of infectious and neglected tropical diseases, and strengthening the healthcare system, including working to train healthcare workers. 
  • Its innovation, commitment and ongoing work are helping to create a world where people across all economic and social circumstances have access to the treatments they need.
  • Johnson & Johnson continue to strengthen its quality culture across the enterprise with the aim to consistently deliver high quality in everything it does. Continuous improvement practices help ensure proactive quality is standard. Its thought leadership is sought to influence and shape external regulations that in turn help raise the standard of care and, thereby, help people live longer, healthier, happier lives. 
  • Its senior leadership establishes broad parameters for stakeholder engagement; it does not have an overarching policy for stakeholder engagement or one group that leads it. As a decentralized company, employees engage with many stakeholders on a variety of topics related to the businesses throughout the world.
  • By collaborating with its partners to strengthen the social, environmental and economic performance of its supply chain, Johnson & Johnson is driving sustainability efforts beyond its four walls, and strengthening the company, as well. 
  • Innovation is what ultimately makes a meaningful difference for the patients and customers it serves. It is a core component of its business success.
  • Johnson & Johnson has realized a 9.6% reduction in facility CO2 emissions against its 2010 baseline, and approximately 7% of the company’s energy is currently generated by clean/renewable sources.Improving the sustainability profiles of its products and/or packaging has been an integral part of the company’s goal-setting efforts since the early 1990s.
