The notion of environmental stewardship and corporate citizenship has been embedded into the Johnson & Johnson culture since 1943 when the Company's Credo
was established by its late Chairman Robert Wood Johnson. In 1987, the Company set its first environmental goal aimed at reducing toxic emissions. Over the past two decades, Johnson & Johnson has continued to set and meet a series of long-term targets across a range of environmental impacts – including Pollution Prevention Goals, Next Generation Goals, and its most recently completed Healthy Planet 2010 Goals
. The next step in its evolution was to go bolder and broader with Healthy Future 2015 Goals
At the heart of Healthy Future 2015 Goals
are 15 of the boldest and broadest sustainability goals we have set to date and extend well beyond environmental stewardship to include an emphasis on improving people’s health, increasing corporate transparency and encouraging collaborative partnerships.
