ust as we believe that good health is the foundation of vibrant lives, thriving communities and forward progress, at Johnson & Johnson we also pride ourselves on fostering healthy supplier relationships that are built on trust, transparency and unparalleled innovation, quality and reliability.
With an extended supply base comprising about 50,000 suppliers across our three business segments, we proudly honor our commitment to inclusion by building a global group of suppliers that reflects the diversity of our patients and customers.
Working with our valued partners, we uphold the highest standards for responsible sourcing and corporate citizenship, encouraging our suppliers to embrace new technologies, source innovative solutions and deliver new business models that contribute to our mutual objectives for growth, sustainability and streamlined processes.
As we advance our vision of a healthier world for all, we will continue to use our reach and size for good as we pioneer this differentiated, industry-leading procurement approach—one that is innovative, collaborative, ethical, sustainable, diverse and, above all, rooted firmly in Our Credo.
We have always considered our suppliers to be an extension of our supply chain and our workforce. Nothing we do would be possible without the hard work and commitment of each and every one of them.
