Sustainable waste management
Janssen cares for the environment and the world we live in. Environmental care is a crucial pillar in the sustainability policy. Our company needs large amounts of raw materials, energy and water to make a difference for the health of all people. Janssen consistently invests in more environmentally-friendly products and production processes and accepts responsibility for the environment in the entire value chain, from the discovery of a medicine to the delivery to the patient.
Janssen makes sure that a minimum of product components is discharged to the environment. The company is giving it all for a sustainable transition with regard to energy, waste, raw materials, water, emissions and biodiversity. Many indicators point at positive progress, but also reveal opportunities which the company wants to take at heart. All departments cherish the sustainable ambition to achieve the Healthy Future objectives by 2015.
In this endeavour we focus on green initiatives, often resulting in green certificates thanks to our joint efforts for ecological sustainability.
