Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health will invest $800 million through 2030 to advance initiatives both inside and outside of our Company.

We’ve set ambitious goals to deliver greater benefits for people, communities and our planet. We will provide full transparency about the ingredients we choose, because consumers should be able to make informed choices easily. We’re deepening partnerships to tackle complex health issues, starting with smoking cessation and preventable skin cancers because healthy lives require going all in to reduce preventable diseases. And, we are innovating to make our packaging easier to recycle or reuse, increasing our use of recycled plastics and paper in our packaging, and powering more of our operations renewable electricity because healthy lives demand a healthy planet.

At Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health, we take a total health approach to helping people live their healthiest lives.

We understand that to thrive, people need healthy places to live, work and play. This is why we’re accelerating action to protect our environment and address important human health challenges.

Aligned with Our Credo, the Consumer Health sector is committed to reducing plastic waste and, when plastic packaging is needed, we strive to design packaging that is 100% reusable or recyclable.

As a start, eight brands in our portfolio have integrated sustainability into their brand strategies and are already designing products with the health of our planet in mind. This includes five global brands: AVEENO®, JOHNSON’S®, LISTERINE®, NEUTROGENA®, OGX®, and three regional brands: LE PETIT MARSEILLAIS®, NICORETTE®, and our women’s health portfolio (STAYFREE®/CAREFREE®/o.b.®).

We’re rethinking how we do business, encouraging experimentation and embedding game-changing behaviors in everything we do.


We work to improve human health by creating and delivering our products in a way that considers the planet’s health without sacrificing the safety and efficacy of our products. Safety and efficacy are paramount.

Our brand ambitions are underpinned by tangible targets to drive meaningful change:


To address complex preventable health issues, our focus is on eradicating smoking and preventable skin cancers. To do this, we will collaborate on initiatives inside and outside our company to help people live healthier lives.


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.
