Every five years, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies sets new long-term goals that help us reduce our environmental footprint. In 2006, we introduced Healthy Planet 2010 goals. All our environmental accomplishments reinforce our commitment to Our Credo, which states that we must “maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use, protecting the environment and natural resources.”
Goal: 100 percent of manufacturing and research and development facilities will provide facility- or company-specific environmental sustainability information to the public.
Actual: 98 percent of facilities submitted information by year-end 2010 for posting on jnj.com.
Carbon Dioxide Reduction
Goal: Absolute reduction in CO2 emissions of 7 percent from 1990–2010.
Actual: Achieved. Over 23 percent absolute reduction realized from 1990–2010.
Goal: Reduce fleet total CO2 emissions per kilometer driven by 30 percent from our 2003 baseline.
Actual: Achieved fleet CO2 emissions of 210.4 grams per kilometer, a 16 percent reduction from our 2003 baseline.
Goal: Absolute reduction of 10 percent compared to our 2005 baseline.
Actual: 9.5 percent decrease realized from 2005–2010.
Goal: Absolute reduction of hazardous and non-hazardous waste of 10 percent from 2005–2010.
Actual: Achieved. 25 percent decrease in hazardous waste and 12 percent reduction in non-hazardous waste realized from 2005–2010.
PAPER AND PACKAGING
Goal: Eliminate PVC in primary, secondary and tertiary packaging in the Consumer sector.* Eliminate PVC in secondary and tertiary packaging in Medical Devices and Diagnostics (MD&D) and Pharmaceutical sectors.
Actual: Since 2005, we have achieved significant PVC packaging reductions:
MD&D: 100 percent reduction in secondary and tertiary PVC packaging.
Pharmaceuticals: 78 percent reduction in secondary and tertiary PVC packaging.
Consumer Products: 87 percent reduction in primary, secondary and tertiary PVC packaging during the goal period; 99.6 percent of all consumer packaging is now PVC-free.*
*Does not include the Consumer sector’s over-the- counter drug products in blister packages.
Goal: 90 percent of office paper and 75 percent of paper-based packaging will contain more than 30 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) content or fiber from certified forests by 2010.
Actual: Achieved. 97 percent of packaging and 92 percent of office paper contain more than 30 percent PCR content or fiber from certified forests.
Goal: All operating companies to have a plan to improve the environmental profiles of their products and processes and eliminate high-priority materials.
Actual: Achieved. 100 percent of operating companies have a plan.
Goal: Implement an electronics take-back program in all regions to ensure that 100 percent of electronic-based waste products can be taken back for remanufacturing or reuse.
Actual: 61 percent of our businesses (calculated on a regional basis) have implemented take-back programs.
Goal: Increase employee awareness and understanding of global environmental issues. 100 percent of facilities have a five-year literacy plan and implement one environ-mental education campaign each year from 2006–2010.
Actual: Achieved. 100 percent of facilities have a five-year literacy plan; 100 percent of facilities deployed a literacy campaign in 2010.
Goal: Enhance biodiversity conservation in areas over which we have control or influence. 100 percent of our facilities or companies have a biodiversity conservation plan.
Actual: Achieved. A biodiversity conservation plan has been in place at 100 percent of our facilities or companies since 2008.
Goal: Zero accidental environmental releases; zero environmental violations.
Actual: Not achieved. We had 10 accidental environmental releases and 57 environmental violations. We are experiencing an upward trend in the number of non-compliances. While all non-compliances were minor, and most were related to waste management or air and wastewater permit infractions, we have refocused our attention on compliance via additional training and reinforcement of our management and assessment processes.
Goal: 100 percent of external manufacturers in conformance with Johnson & Johnson Standards for Responsible External Manufacturing.
Actual: Since establishing our standards in 2006, 98 percent of our external manufacturers have been assessed against and are in conformance with our standards.
