Sustainability

Our goal at Johnson Matthey is to grow our business – but to grow it sustainably. Sustainability is a key element of our strategy for continued growth. We believe that the resource efficient, environmentally responsible manufacturing of products that deliver sustainability benefits for our customers can leverage commercial advantage for the group. Our plans for the coming years – set out in our Sustainability 2017 Vision – link financial success with better social, environmental and ethical performance. What is good for us is also good for the planet and society.

As a core part of the programme, we identified five elements of sustainability – social, environment, health and safety, governance and financial – and set ourselves tough targets. The targets include achieving carbon neutrality, reducing key resources by 50% per unit of output and sending zero waste to landfill; at the same time, we aim to double earnings per share – all by 2017, the two hundredth anniversary of the company’s foundation

Johnson Matthey is an international specialty chemicals company a world leader in sustainable technologies. Many of our products have a beneficial impact on society, improving the quality of life for millions of people around the world.
