Janssen has made far-reaching efforts to make waste management sustainable. In line with the Healthy Future objectives of parent company Johnson & Johnson, the amount of waste which is not reused or recycled must be reduced by 10% by 2015.
Thousands of kilos of waste are generated each day at the Janssen sites in Belgium. The company is unable to avoid waste altogether, but it is committed to sustainable waste management.
Janssen also aims for less pharmaceutical substances in the environment. And Janssen is also dedicated to raising the awareness of its own staff to sustainably handle waste.
