Our Responsibility to Society

At Janssen, we have a responsibility to society and to the planet at large. That’s why we strive to improve the health of both individuals and the communities in which we live – through access to healthcare and education, and by caring for our carers and for the planet.

Our Credo guides our role in society

We have a responsibility to the communities in which we live and work, as well as to the global community. We must help people be healthier by supporting better access and care in more places around the world. We must be good citizens by supporting good works and charities and better health and education, while bearing our fair share of taxes.

Our COVID-19 response


Kris Sterkens, Company Group Chairman, Janssen EMEA

For over a century, Johnson & Johnson has actively engaged in fighting global outbreaks from TB to HIV and Ebola. Our knowledge and experience, successes and set-backs alike, inform everything we’re doing today to help eradicate COVID-19.

  • A vaccine will be critical to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re committed to bringing an affordable vaccine to the public on a not-for-profit basis for emergency pandemic use, provided the investigational vaccine is safe and effective.
  • We’re committed to supporting frontline healthcare workers and our communities. We are delivering critical support for communities and health workers on the frontlines. In March, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies and the Johnson & Johnson Foundation committed $50 million dollars to support frontline health workers—from meals to protective equipment, extra training to mental health.
  • In response to COVID-19, Janssen EMEA, along with our Medical Devices and Consumer Health companies, made $5 million of the $50 million available to support the needs of health workers in the EMEA region through our BacktheFrontline campaign.
