Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson, the US-based multinational medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods manufacturing company, joined RE100 in September 2015 with a target to power all of its facilities with renewable energy by 2050.

The company began its formal energy management program more than 30 years ago. In 2000, it established its first enterprise-wide, public commitment to reduce CO2 emissions. After achieving this and subsequent goals, the company recently established new energy and climate targets based on the latest climate science. These include cutting CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020 (based on 2010 levels) and by 80% by 2050, and producing or procuring 20% of its electricity from clean or renewable sources by 2020 – with an aspiration to power all of its facilities with 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Paulette Frank, Vice President, Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability, Johnson & Johnson said: "RE100 is one of several organizations we’re working with to increase the uptake of renewable energy. We know through partnership we can leverage peer-to-peer learning to accelerate our own efforts and hopefully inspire others to shift to renewables."
