Janssen’s efforts to reduce pollution and enhance the safety of its vehicle fleet impacts the triple bottom-line by improving our environmental footprint, our employee health and safety and our business results. They also underscore the Johnson & Johnson Credo commitment to protect the environment, natural resources and our employees.
As a pharmaceutical company with a large sales force, the company vehicle is the main workspace for many employees. Buying, fueling and maintaining that fleet possesses the potential for broad business and environmental impacts. Recognizing this, Johnson & Johnson has set an ambitious Healthy Future 2015 goal to reduce CO2 emissions 20 percent by 2015. Janssen’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) fleet (one-third of the Johnson & Johnson total EMEA fleet) has been a leader in environmental practices, making strides in converting to hybrids and employing green and safe-driving habits. It has already reduced emissions to 127 grams per kilometer (g/km), 13 percent below the 147 g/km Johnson & Johnson global average.
