Johnson & Johnson

"Johnson & Johnson has set a net zero target for 2045, covering carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Net Zero Tracker
This includes scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, but does not cover historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker
By 2030, the company aims to achieve carbon neutrality for its operations, reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 60% from 2016 levels. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they are signatories of the Race to Zero/ Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign, demonstrating their commitment to environmental sustainability. Net Zero Tracker

Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

Johnson & Johnson belongs to the sector Health Care.

Near-term Long-Term Net Zero Standard
Targets Set : 1.5°C by 2030 No target Yes
Johnson & Johnson is a member of the Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign (link here )

Johnson & Johnson commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions
44% by 2030 from a 2021 base year.* Johnson & Johnson also commits that 80%
of its suppliers by emissions covering purchased goods and services and
upstream transportation and distribution, will have science-based targets by 2028.
* The target boundary includes biogenic land-related emissions and removals from
bioenergy feedstocks.

Offsets

Last update for Johnson & Johnson by zerotracker.net: June 19, 2023
Planning to use external offset credits Not Specified
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits None
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Yes (nature-based removals e.g. Forestation, soil carbon enhancement)

Additional notes: mention of credits to achieve carbon neutrality goal % absolute reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – Scope 1 + 2 + carbon credits vs. 2016 baseline. How Johnson & Johnson will reach their goals: Deliver nature-based climate solutions. After other options have been vetted, Johnson & Johnson will invest in carbon compensation and removal partnerships.
