"The Gojo Purpose, Saving Lives and Making Life Better Through Well-Being Solutions, continues to inspire our deep commitment to creating Sustainable Value – that is, social, environmental and economic value – for Gojo and our customers and people who use our products, our suppliers, our team members, our collaboration partners and our community," said Marcella Kanfer Rolnick, vice chair, Gojo. "As we have worked to rise up to the challenge of this imperative, we have learned that what is needed and expected by our customers and other stakeholders are new sources of Sustainable Value for today and tomorrow. Our 2020 Sustainable Value Strategies and Goals are a reflection of this, and through customer and industry partnerships, innovation and increased transparency, we will deliver on these goals over the next five years."
The Gojo 2020 Sustainable Value Strategies and Goals are:
• Innovate to Create Sustainable Value – Gojo will cut its chemical footprint in half; establish and maintain an industry-leading sustainable chemistry policy; double global sales from products with third-party certifications; and source reduce packaging material by 15%.
• Elevate Public Health and Well-Being– The company's long-term social sustainability goal is to bring well-being to one billion people every day. Gojo will work towards achieving this goal while striving to be the most recognized advocate for well-being through hygiene in our industry.
• Steward a Thriving Environment – Gojo will recover and either reuse or recycle 50% of dispenser materials from the value chain; migrate 90% of Gojo Strategic, Preferred and Collaborative suppliers to meet Gojo Sustainable Value Responsible Sourcing Criteria; and power its distribution operations by renewable energy.
