The expectations of our stakeholders and the business environment in which we operate constantly evolve. Against this backdrop, our Priority Topics Assessment process helps us identify and prioritize the environmental, social and governance issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our Company. We have been conducting Priority Topics Assessments since 2008; the 2016 assessment was our fourth. We used the stakeholder feedback from this process to inform our reporting so that we communicate our performance and progress more effectively in line with the needs of various stakeholder groups and our own business interests.
The following table summarizes our consolidated list of priority topics and ranking results1. The topics are ranked based on both importance to all stakeholders (including Johnson & Johnson), and the potential for social, economic, and/or environmental impact.
