Our extended supply chain comprises more than 51,000 suppliers across our three business segments, serving our 90 manufacturing facilities and distribution operations in virtually all countries of the world.
A critically important link in our value chain, Johnson & Johnson’s supplier network underpins our business continuity, expands our capabilities and innovation and enables our ability to serve our patients, consumers and customers and their need for our essential products and services. We aim to maintain collaborative and trusting supplier relationships and encourage a broad diversity of suppliers to work with us. We aim to ensure our supplier base operates in line with Our Credo values, in compliance with laws and regulations and in support of our Health for Humanity Goals. We do this through our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers, our Supplier Sustainability Program (SSP)21 and Global Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program. For more information, see our Position on Responsible Supply Base and our Position on Business Continuity Management.
In 2020, as part of our multiyear Health for Humanity 2020 Goals, we made progress in advancing our responsible supply base. We have now established challenging goals to drive further impact across our supplier base.
