Non-compliance with environmental laws and regulations
- Our global Environmental Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS&S) team is headed by our Vice President, EHS&S, and partners with other functional teams throughout Johnson & Johnson to drive environmental sustainability and workplace safety across our entire value chain. The EHS Council, comprised of the EHS&S leadership team and representatives from business segments, provides additional guidance.
- The Johnson & Johnson Executive Committee and the Board of Directors provide oversight.
- The Science, Technology & Sustainability Committee (STSC) of our Board of Directors provides support by identifying emerging science and technology policy and public health issues. In addition, STSC reviews Johnson & Johnson policies, goals and performance related to environmental sustainability.
- The Regulatory Compliance Committee of the Board of Directors oversees compliance with environment, health and safety (EHS) regulatory requirements and overall workplace safety performance.
