Kenvue Unveils First-Ever Healthy Lives Mission Report

As the world’s largest pure-play consumer health company by revenue, Kenvue has released its first-ever Healthy Lives Mission Report, highlighting the company’s efforts to enhance the well-being of both people and the planet in 2023. “We recognize that human health is inseparably linked to environmental health, and our commitment to everyday care extends to the planet we call home,” said Thibaut Mongon, Chief Executive Officer. “In establishing Kenvue as an independent company, we reaffirmed our Healthy Lives Mission, our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy, and positioned our portfolio of iconic brands and Kenvuers globally to build lasting positive change.”

In 2023, Kenvue leveraged its science, operations, team members, and brands to advance its Healthy Lives Mission, focusing on nurturing healthy people, enriching a healthy planet, and maintaining healthy practices.

“In the past year, we have made meaningful progress with our Healthy Lives Mission by reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and virgin plastic footprint, advancing sustainable sourcing of paper, and developing values-led policies and programs to positively impact individuals and communities,” said Pamela Gill-Alabaster, Global Head of ESG & Sustainability. “As a global leader in consumer health, we will continue to draw on our brands, resources, and platforms to help shape a healthy future for both people and the planet.”

Highlights from the inaugural report include:

Healthy People: Kenvue provided innovative products and actionable information to help communities make healthier decisions. The company fostered an inclusive, equitable, and diverse workplace culture, aiming to create a sense of belonging for all. By the end of 2023, Kenvue’s global workforce was approximately 50% male and 50% female, with 36% of U.S. employees identifying as racial or ethnic minorities. Through diverse backgrounds and perspectives, the company collaborated on innovations and products that reflect the needs of global consumers, such as the Neutrogena® Purescreen+™ Mineral UV Tint Face Liquid Sunscreen range in the U.S., designed to be inclusive of varying skin tones, and the Johnson’s® Blackinho Poderoso line in Brazil for children with curly hair.

Healthy Planet: Kenvue invested in energy efficiency and decarbonization projects, resulting in a 26% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions since 2020. The company increased its use of renewable electricity to 65% through 18 onsite solar-powered systems and offsite renewable electricity procurement contracts. Using circular economy design principles, Kenvue increased the use of recyclable or refillable packaging to 71% of its portfolio and reduced the volume of virgin plastic in packaging by 21%. Additionally, 94% of the volume of paper and wood fiber packaging used was certified or verified recycled.

Healthy Practice: Kenvue promoted a culture of integrity, ethics, and transparency to build trust and create long-term value. The company is committed to optimizing the environmental performance of its products using scientific lifecycle design principles and tools such as the Sustainable Innovation Profiler (SIP), which promotes sustainable ingredients and packaging materials. Kenvue is also expanding access to product information through digital platforms, like the Neutrogena® Glossary of Ingredients and Johnson’s® Baby digital transparency tool, to empower consumers to make informed choices.
