As the world’s most comprehensive and broadly-based health care company, Johnson & Johnson understands that human heath depends upon the health of the planet. To be successful in conserving biodiversity, it has promoted global understanding of the links to human health.
All of J&J’s work is guided by the ethical principles embodied in its Credo—safeguarding employees, providing them with resources to lead healthier lives, minimizing the impact of the company's products and operations on the environment, and enhancing the quality of life.
J&J has three facilities certified under the LEED program of the U.S. Green Building Council, and, in 2005, it was the second largest corporate user of on-site photovoltaic solar energy and the largest corporate purchaser of wind power and CO2 offsets in the U.S. Also in 2005, the company was named Green Power Partner of the Year by EPA, the only green power purchaser to receive this award for three consecutive years. Commitments for 2010 include a seven percent absolute reduction in CO2 emissions from stationary sources, based on 1990 levels and a ten percent absolute reduction in water use.
