SC Johnson Sustainability Report

SC Johnson Sustainability Report

SC Johnson’s 2017 sustainability report, The Science Inside, shares the company’s progress in its efforts to help protect the environment, improve lives and champion ingredient transparency. The 26th annual report also provides the criteria inside the company’s Greenlist™ ingredient selection program. The Greenlist™ program helps the company continually improve its products by choosing ingredients to better protect human health and the environment. People can now see, in detail, the care that goes into choosing each of the ingredients in our products.

Championing Transparency

We want people to have the whole story about the products they bring into their homes. We are committed to giving people the ingredient information they need to make the right choices for themselves and their families. In 2017, we:

  • Launched an industry-leading skin allergen disclosure program to show, on a product-specific basis, the presence of 368 skin allergens that may occur in our products.
  • Marked the fifth anniversary of our SC Johnson Fragrance Palette, which excludes 2,400 potential fragrance components because there may be a lack of basic safety information or they don’t meet a high enough standard.
  • Expanded our ingredient transparency program,, to Asia Pacific. The program now reaches over 5 billion consumers in 52 countries around the world.

Protecting the Environment

SC Johnson goes beyond what’s required and aims to take care of the environment for future generations. We continue to make great environmental strides to reduce global manufacturing waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and increase use of global energy from renewable sources including:

  • 35% of energy use globally from renewable sources.
  • 55% greenhouse gas emissions reduction from SC Johnson manufacturing sites since 2000, indexed to production.
  • 79% waste reduction at SC Johnson manufacturing sites since 2000, as a ratio to production.
  • 10,000 acres of rainforest in the Amazon region preserved in partnership with Conservation International

Improving Lives for Families Around the World

We work to make lives better for people in the communities where we operate. Since 1937, SC Johnson has given 5% of all pretax profits to charities. 2017 marks 80 years of giving and the 58th year of our charitable foundation, SC Johnson Giving, Inc. In addition, in 2017 we:

  • Exceeded our commitment to donate $15 million in product and resources to efforts to help families protect themselves from Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases.
  • Teamed up with The Coca-Cola Company and Society for Family Health Rwanda as part of the EKOCENTER program to provide basic goods to families in need.
  • Matched donations to educational institutions, which have now reached $15 million over the last 20 years.
