Johnson & Johnson Vision Reinforces Sustainability Commitment

Johnson & Johnson Vision has signed a 10-year deal with JEA that will see 100% of the electricity at its global headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida, come from solar power. 

The agreement reinforces the company’s commitment to sustainability with the business to be on track to source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025, as well as achieve carbon neutrality across all its operations by 2030, as part of Johnson & Johnson’s global climate goals.

The deal, which goes into effect in 2022, will help Johnson & Johnson Vision meet its renewable electricity target and means that all ACUVUE® brand contact lenses will be made using 100% renewable electricity. Johnson & Johnson Vision’s production site in Limerick, Ireland, is already powered by 100% wind.

This comes as ACUVUE® unveils a new sustainability vision with the aim of minimizing its impact on the climate, tackling waste and protecting natural resources. The company has launched a new webpage dedicated to the vision, with sustainability resources for patients and eyecare professionals. 

As part of the new ACUVUE® sustainability resources, the brand is also encouraging contact lens wearers to not flush their lenses down the toilet or sink to prevent them finding their way into streams, rivers, and oceans. A new public information video and leaflet are now available to download to guide wearers on how to responsibly dispose of their contact lenses.
