This marks the first time Johnson & Johnson has reported against the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards. As the world’s most broadly based healthcare company, we have included disclosures related to three SASB industry standards that most closely align to our business: Biotechnology & Pharmaceuticals, Medical Equipment & Supplies and Household & Personal Care Products. Our reporting against the SASB standards is a voluntary disclosure to support the evolving information needs of our investors. As such, we are committed to providing investors with useful, relevant and meaningful sustainability information and have selected metrics from the three aforementioned sectors under the SASB standards. The determination of the topics covered below is based on two factors: (i) sector-specific guidance provided by SASB and (ii) periodic assessments of sustainability issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our business. We will continue to evaluate these topics in the future and, accordingly, our disclosure may evolve over time.
