Johnson & Johnson see our citizenship and sustainability as more than our social, environmental and economic performance. Rather, it is who we are and how we act. It is how we lead and participate in helping solve the world’s major healthcare challenges, protecting the environment and conserving resources we are privileged to use. It is how we conduct ourselves and our business to contribute positively to society.

We have contributed nearly US$1 billion in funds and products to support 600 programs in 50 countries in 2013. A number of these are in Australia and neighbouring countries, and include Careflight, Barnardos, Operation Smile and Interplast. We also provide a broad base of strong support to the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and Mary MacKillop East Timor Mission to make a positive difference in the community.
