t Johnson & Johnson, we believe good health is the foundation of vibrant lives, thriving communities and forward progress. And for more than 130 years, we have aimed to keep people well at every age and every stage of life.
Since our company’s inception, we have been committed to using our reach and size for good. We strive to improve access and affordability, create healthier communities, and put a healthy mind, body and environment within reach of everyone, everywhere.
As we advance our vision of a healthier world for all, we are guided by the values outlined in Our Credo. From its creation more than 75 years ago, Our Credo has declared how we will work and the stakeholders we will serve, setting a clear example of transparency and accountability. Today, we continue to live our values by setting ambitious goals with clear measures of success for all the ways in which we are changing the trajectory of health—through diversity, sustainability and community impact and by communicating openly and consistently about our work across our Pharmaceutical, MedTech and Consumer Health business sectors.
This approach enables stakeholders to make informed decisions about their interactions with Our Company. It also allows us to measure and track how we are delivering on our commitments through disclosures that give clarity into our practices and progress. We operate with Transparency and Accountability because it is the right thing to do and because these values are critical to advancing our goal of changing the trajectory of health for humanity.
Further uniting all of us at Johnson & Johnson, Our Health for Humanity 2025 Goals focus our citizenship and sustainability efforts where we believe Our Company can achieve the greatest societal impact.

As the world’s largest healthcare company, we’ve been building that trust for more than a century.

In January 2020, Janssen scientists immediately mobilized to begin researching and developing a COVID-19 vaccine for use globally that earned Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and several other health authorities in the early spring of 2021. Today, millions of doses have been administered around the world.
Johnson & Johnson understands that climate health can affect 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 support responsible climate and energy policy around the world.
Every day, we work to put people first—from proactive and transparent medical safety surveillance to groundbreaking real-world evidence applications, pediatric clinical research advancements, early access innovation and more. … Johnson & Johnson’s OCMO is constantly reviewing, monitoring and making decisions regarding the safety of our products through people-driven processes, initiatives and policies that are reinforced by a single medical safety standard, to which all our products are held.
As stated in Our Credo, everything we do must be of high quality. It is our first responsibility to people around the world who use and trust Johnson & Johnson products. Every employee of Our Company proudly accepts this responsibility every day.
Sustainability both protects our business from risks—such as climate change risk, reputational risk and more—and furnishes us with opportunities to engage more deeply with those impacted by our business and, therefore, understand how we may better meet their expectations and needs. In this way, we are better equipped to allocate resources to deliver the health solutions the world needs most.
