A Commitment to Caring

he people of Johnson & Johnson are about changing the trajectory of health for humanity. We started this long before the word “citizenship” was fashionable. For us, this is a calling and not just a business. A calling that we put our pioneering science, human ingenuity and whole hearts into—and have for 130 years.

Throughout our company’s history, we’ve been guided by our founding principles of citizenship and Our Credo Our CredoThe values that guide our decision-making—which compel us to put people first.

Today, the world is our community. And our citizenship is on a global stage.


  • We are proud to support Save the Children to provide humanitarian aid and longer-term resilience training to Syrian refugees.

    On the Front Lines of Care

    Changing the trajectory of health for humanity requires putting people first. When healthy people and families thrive in healthier communities, everything else will follow.

    As human beings, it is our responsibility to help one another. We support the people on the front lines at the heart of delivering care, so that communities and health systems have the ability to address the health needs of the world’s most vulnerable people.

    We don’t do this alone. Through both global and community-based partnerships, we help mothers in developing countries to receive text messages for a safe pregnancy and delivery, babies without access to healthcare workers to take their first breath, and the next generation of global and community-based health leaders to develop the skills and tools they need to drive health and well-being one human at a time.

    By galvanizing partners, connecting communities and leveraging our employees and extensive local reach, we help activate the resources—and resolve—needed to address the world’s most pressing health challenges.


  • In 2016 alone, the mMitra mobile maternal health program provided vital health messages to 500,000 expectant and new moms in India.

    Using Big for Good

    Important progress has been made to improve the health of communities around the world. Still many of the world’s most pressing public health issues remain unsolved.

    Johnson & Johnson is uniquely positioned to tackle these complex public health challenges. By tapping into the resources and knowledge found across our Family of Companies, we can create comprehensive programs that improve the health of people around the world.

    Whether it is ensuring children and young women live HIV-free, eliminating deaths from TB or bringing an end to preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths, we are in it for the long haul. We are committed to using our capabilities, expertise, influence and partnerships to make the world a better, healthier place.

  • Johnson & Johnson has already met its original 2020 goal of producing or procuring 20% of our electricity needs from clean or renewable sources.

    Aspiring Toward a Healthier World

    We aspire to improve health in all we do and everywhere we go. Citizenship and sustainability have long been engrained in our culture, built on a foundational belief that a healthier planet offers benefits to human health.

    To ensure we live up to our commitments, we have a long legacy of goal setting, having established the first public goals in 1990. Our current Citizenship & Sustainability 2020 goals expanded how we think about health and we have sought out new ways to make everyone, everywhere, healthier.

    We ensure people have access to better care around the world, make the places we live, work and play healthier by using fewer resources, and team up with partners and employees to further advance our culture of health and well-being.

    Our 2030 Promise

    Imagine a world where we can all believe—no matter where we live—that our children’s lives will be far better than our own. To bring good health to all, we need to make the right connections, one human at a time.

    Johnson & Johnson is uniquely positioned to improve the course of human health by galvanizing our partners, mobilizing our employees and engaging our communities.

    For this reason, we are signing up for the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals—the world’s roadmap for progress—and dedicating our expertise, ideas and ingenuity to catalyze efforts where we are uniquely positioned to create sustainable and scalable impacts.
