Sustainability

At Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health, our Leadership Brands are working to deliver total health – for individuals at every stage of life, for communities around the world, and for our planet.

In 2020, we introduced our 10-year ambition to advance human health while also protecting our planet. We call this our Healthy Lives Mission.

We are fighting preventable diseases through stop smoking programs and skin cancer prevention partnerships. We are improving product transparency so our consumers can make informed choices about personal health products. And we are reducing our environmental impact by using more recycled materials in our packaging, making sure our packaging is easy to recycle or reuse, and powering our operations with renewable electricity.

We have committed to invest $800 million by 2030 to fulfill our Healthy Lives Mission. Our 19,000 employees are excited by the challenge and empowered to make it happen. We hope that through this work, our brands are increasingly recognized as the healthy choice - for both the planet and its people.

We are making changes across our supply chain, from how we package and promote our products, to the ingredients we choose and the electricity we use to power our facilities.

We began in 2020 with 8 Leadership Brands that built sustainability into their brand strategies and started designing products with both human and environmental health in mind: AVEENO®, JOHNSON’S®, LISTERINE®, NEUTROGENA®, OGX®, and three regional brands: LE PETIT MARSEILLAIS®, NICORETTE®, and our women’s health portfolio (STAYFREE®/CAREFREE®/o.b.®). To speed up innovation and impact, our Leadership Brands are working together as a community of practice - learning together, sharing ideas and pushing experimentation for faster change.

In the U.S., we developed the Global Aquatic Ingredient Assessment™ (GAIA) tool that helps us formulate non-toxic and biodegradable products that are not harmful to aquatic life and ecosystems. To date, we have assessed 1,000 ingredients using this patented tool. Learn more about GAIA here.
