Upholding Citizenship and Sustainability at Johnson & Johnson

Every year, Corporate Responsibility Magazine compiles a list of the ‘100 Best Corporate Citizens.’ The list ranks companies based on their positive impact in categories like environment, human rights, corporate governance and more. While Microsoft topped the list for 2015, Johnson & Johnson came in 3rd. This month, we’d like to highlight Johnson & Johnson in our Brand Philanthropy Series.

Johnson & Johnson is an American multinational medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods manufacturer. While that sounds like a lot, most Americans know Johnson & Johnson for its iconic baby lotion and body wash. But outside of its consumer products, Johnson & Johnson is dedicated to ‘Citizenship and Sustainability.’

The company’s mission is to help people live longer, healthier and happier lives. Johnson & Johnson believes its responsibilities are to: the patients and customers it serves, it’s employees, the communities in which its employees live and work, and its shareholders. Its citizenship and sustainability practices are an important part of those responsibilities. To learn more about the organization’s dedication to Community and Sustainability, read Johnson & Johnson’s 2014 report here.

After conducting an assessment, Johnson & Johnson decided to focus on three key areas that support its mission of upholding ‘Citizenship and Sustainability’: advancing human health and well-being, stewarding a healthy environment, and leading a dynamic and responsible business. While there are many initiatives under each key area, the goal is still the same – lead in helping to solve the world’s major health care challenges, protect the environment, and conduct business in a responsible way that contributes to society.

There is a lot to learn from Johnson & Johnson’s CSR initiatives. So to take a deep dive into its philanthropic initiatives, take a look at their website. And be sure to follow CPXample on Twitter for more updates on brands giving back and social good news!
