Johnson & Johnson’s Approach To Climate Action:
environmental health equity, and we support responsible climate and energy policy around the world.
s a healthcare company, Johnson & Johnson understands that climate health affects human health. In fact, we’re seeing climate change impact health in new ways by changing infectious disease patterns and increasing the risk of drought and food insecurity. We have taken sustained, long-term action to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and we are encouraging our suppliers to do the same. We also work with like-minded partners to advance
The latest climate science indicates rising global temperatures must be limited to 1.5°C to avoid the most significant impacts of climate change to human and planetary health. To do our part to help maintain a healthy climate, we’ve set our most ambitious climate goals to date, building on our past achievements while accelerating future actions.
- By 2025, source 100% of our electricity needs from renewable sources.
- By 2030, achieve carbon neutrality for our operations, going beyond our Science-Based Target to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 emissions 60% from 2016 levels.
- By 2030, reduce absolute upstream value chain (Scope 3) emissions 20% from 2016 levels. Reaching this goal will deliver nearly 2.5 times the carbon footprint reduction compared to that of our own operations.
Our operational emissions goal has been validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as being consistent with the reductions required to keep global warming to 1.5°C, and our value chain (Scope 3) goal meets the SBTi’s criteria for ambitious value chain goals.
We are also proud signatories of the Race to Zero/ Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign and have an ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions across our value chain by 2045.”
