At Johnson & Johnson, we believe acting ethically and responsibly is not only the right thing to do, but also the right thing to do for our business. Our Johnson & Johnson Code of Business Conduct ensures that we hold ourselves and how we do business to a high standard, allowing us to fulfill our obligations to the many stakeholders we serve.
Effective March 30, 2020, Johnson & Johnson amended its Code of Business Conduct to provide enhanced guidance on addressing the evolving business environment.
The Credo Hotline is an integral component of the strong compliance culture at Johnson & Johnson. It provides a channel for all employees, contractors, customers, third-party agencies and other partners to report potential violations of the Code of Business Conduct, other Company policies or the applicable laws and regulations in the countries of operation. The Credo Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and in 23 languages. The concerns can be filed both electronically on www.credohotline.com or by calling a toll-free number (see international dialing instructions on the same website).
The values and principles spelled out in Our Credo serve as our compass; the Johnson & Johnson Code of Business Conduct is the road map that helps us stay on course with those values. The Codes sets requirements for business conduct and serves as a foundation for our Company policies, procedures and guidelines, all of which provide additional guidance on expected behaviors.
