We invite our suppliers to work alongside us to create a multiplier effect in communities across the globe. Our award-winning Supplier Sustainability Program is key to this effort, helping to drive continuous improvements in reducing environmental impact and improving human rights. By 2025, we aim to expand our Supplier Sustainability Program to include all suppliers.
We recognize that, to create impact at scale, we must be clear about our requirements and help our suppliers incorporate sustainable practices into their business. We verify and monitor supplier compliance with our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers through formal assessment and audits.
EcoVadis provides business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. Suppliers in Johnson & Johnson’s Supplier Sustainability Program are required to complete an EcoVadis assessment and work on continual improvements to ensure they uphold our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers.
CDP is a not-for-profit organization that provides the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage environmental impacts. CDP Supply Chain tracks the climate, water and forest footprint of an organization. Johnson & Johnson discloses to CDP and requests certain suppliers do the same.
Our Human Rights in the Supply Base Program was established to ensure we are upholding human rights throughout our supply chain. Our goal is to assess labor practices in the supply base and work with our suppliers to ensure the human rights elements of our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers are upheld.
A Partnership for Good is a collaboration between Johnson & Johnson and a supplier to create innovative solutions that drive significant environmental, social and economic improvements. Partnership for Good projects are directly tied to Johnson & Johnson’s sustainability priorities. By 2025, we intend to establish 10 supplier Partnerships for Good.
