"Johnson & Johnson has set a net zero target for 2045, covering carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Net Zero Tracker This includes scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, but does not cover historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker By 2030, the company aims to achieve carbon neutrality for its operations, reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 60% from 2016 levels. Net Zero Tracker An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they are signatories of the Race to Zero/ Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign, demonstrating their commitment to environmental sustainability. Net Zero Tracker In addition, you can …"
Carbon emissions are estimated according to comparable years, intensity and sector

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG
emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1
million USD revenue).
Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary
business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer
Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and

Separate targets for emission reductions and removals
Conditions on use of offset credits
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR)
Yes (nature-based removals e.g. Forestation, soil carbon enhancement)
Additional notes: mention of credits to achieve carbon neutrality goal
% absolute reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions –
Scope 1 + 2 + carbon credits vs. 2016 baseline.
How Johnson & Johnson will reach their goals: Deliver nature-based climate solutions. After other options have been vetted, Johnson & Johnson will invest in carbon compensation and removal partnerships.
At least 2 years of GHG emissions for scope 1 and 2 are publicly-available and externally-verified
Scope 3 emissions are fully reported and externally-verified
CDP score demonstrates the level of transparent disclosures
Net Zero Commitments by 2050 include an intermediate target and cover all the emissions
Net Zero targets demonstrate a high-level of emergency
Emission reduction targets on a forward-looking basis are ambitious
