A critically important link in our value chain, Johnson & Johnson’s supplier network underpins our business continuity and enables us to manufacture and deliver essential products and services to our patients, consumers and customers.
Guided by Our Credo values, we aim to maintain collaborative supplier relationships and encourage a broad diversity of suppliers to work with us. Our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers, our Supplier Sustainability Program (SSP) and our Global Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program are core frameworks that underscore our interactions with suppliers, what we expect of them and how we support them. Through our Partnerships for Good, we encourage our suppliers to join us in developing sustainable solutions to social and environmental challenges.
