Governance and Economic
Our Credo has been the moral compass for our business since 1943. It guides the decisions we make, the emphasis we place on our stakeholders, and the way we conduct business.
We understand that core values or a business philosophy cannot be mandated. But through the formal policies and practices a company adopts to govern its business conduct, its values and principles can be upheld. The principles in Our Credo reflect the character, ethics and values that define us as a Company and lay the foundation for the expectations we have for our directors, management and employees in operating a responsible company.
In addition to governance principles, Johnson & Johnson ensures compliance through numerous policies, guidelines and standards, such as Our Policy on Business Conduct, which all of our operating companies are expected to follow.
We recognize the relationship between good governance and sound financial performance. The economic value generated through a well managed and governed enterprise not only benefits stockowners, it also benefits local communities through small business development, and through the contributions made to the social infrastructure needed to sustain community health.
