Throughout our history, Ethicon has remained committed to the Johnson & Johnson goals of improving the health and well-being of the world community. One of the ways we help bring that vision to life is by protecting the environments in which we work and live.
Johnson & Johnson began shaping environmental commitments into formal goals more than 25 years ago. One of the first, set in 1987, aimed to reduce toxic emissions. Today, Johnson & Johnson aspires to be the most environmentally and socially responsible company in the world. We hold ourselves accountable to create a better world across such wide-ranging touchpoints as pollution prevention, water and energy use, and the health and safety of our employees and neighbors. Our Citizenship & Sustainability 2020 Goals set measurable targets for long-term improvements.
We set these high standards not just to comply with regulations but, more important, to protect our planet, its people, and its resources and to strengthen future generations.
We produce Ethicon products in facilities that are part of Ethicon, Inc. and Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc.
