Our ESG strategy
As a purpose-driven company, how we deliver enduring impact is embedded in our business strategy through execution of our ESG strategy, which frames our ambitions, informs our operations and creates accountability for our vision of the future. At the most senior level, our Board of Directors oversees the Executive Committee’s implementation of our ESG strategy to promote responsible business practices through a culture of integrity and accountable leadership across our Company.
We focus our efforts on the areas where we are uniquely positioned to achieve the greatest impact – championing global health equity, empowering our employees and advancing environmental health. Leading with accountability and innovation is foundational to these efforts and essential to achieving Our Purpose, creating a virtuous circle that creates economic, environmental and social value for all those we serve. We create long-term value by helping to achieve better health outcomes for patients and healthcare providers, foster rewarding opportunities for our employees and suppliers, protect and strengthen the communities in which we live and work, and provide profitable, sustainable growth for investors.
Our environmental, social and governance impact
Our Health for Humanity Report is our annual disclosure on environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance, and illustrates the notable progress we have made against our 2025 goals.
In 2021 we continued to champion global health equity, to make strides to cultivate a workforce that is healthy, inspired and reflective of those we serve, and drove progress to reduce our emissions and protect the environment.
J&J has engaged in multiple deals for renewable energy to achieve our goal of equivalence to 100% renewable electricity in Europe by 2023. We are also investing in science-based research, education & recycling programs to achieve net zero carbon emissions across our value chain by 2045.
We strive to create long-term social value through delivering innovative medicines, vaccines, treatments and devices; improving access and affordability; supporting efforts to create stronger healthcare systems; and helping put a healthy mind, body and environment within reach of everyone, everywhere.
Across all our business segments, we advance product innovation, leveraging our extensive expertise, experience and resources as well as multiple external collaborations and partnerships across the world. Through our global innovation network, we connect life science and health technology innovators with the breadth and depth of offerings that are unique to Johnson & Johnson.
Climate change is creating a health emergency

The research revealed that HCPs think they need to better prepare patients for what’s coming, as well as adapt their healthcare systems to be more sustainable.
