Vision for Good Impact Report

Our Vision for Good report shares the story of our collective corporate social responsibility efforts around the globe. Our people, expertise, and global reach matter: Being a part of the world’s largest and most broadly based healthcare company wouldn’t mean much if we didn’t strive for global change.

Project by project, person by person, we’re committed to sharing our time, talents, and treasure to change the trajectory of eye health – to helping people see better, connect better, live better.

Eye Health Access

Supporting access to eye health and care in communities around the world.

We consider it a privilege to bring eye health care and access to people worldwide through our two signature charity partners, Lions Clubs International Foundation and HCP Cureblindness.

Together, we’re helping kids grow, play, and learn; and adults more fully experience the lives they’ve built – freeing them from needless blindness.

Ensuring children have access to eye health services through Sight For Kids – a program co-founded by Johnson & Johnson Vision and Lions Clubs International Foundation.

Established in 2002, Sight For Kids is the largest-known, school-based eye health program in the world. Reaching over 3 million children annually, Sight For Kids mobilizes eye care professionals and volunteers to provide comprehensive eye health services to students in low-income schools across Africa, Asia, and North America. The program also trains teachers to deliver eye health education, perform a visual acuity test, and screen their students for common eye conditions.

For the past 20 years, Sight For Kids has equipped communities around the world to provide children with clear and healthy vision. The program has engaged more than 200,000 teachers, visually screened over 42 million students, helped 600,000 students receive additional treatments and surgeries from eye care professionals, while also providing 500,000 pairs of eyeglasses to children.1

Working to eliminate preventable and curable blindness in under-resourced communities through support of HCP Cureblindness

Dedicated to changing the arc of global blindness, HCP Cureblindess envisions a future in which everyone has access to high-quality, cost-effective eye care and no person is needlessly blind. They work to make this future a reality by taking a hands-on approach and cultivating the growth of local, sustainable eye care systems for under-resourced communities around the world.

Since 1995, HCP Cureblindess has established multiple eye care hospitals and training institutes, trained over 18,000 eye care professionals, screened and provided basic eye exams to 13.3 million+ people, and performed more than 1.19 million sight-restoring surgeries. Today, they work with an extensive network of partners to bring life-changing vision care solutions to more than 20 countries across South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa – helping to ensure needless blindness becomes one public health problem we can overcome.2

Healthy Communities

Doing a world of good for local communities.

From elevating eye health awareness, to increasing access to care, to strengthening the neighborhoods in which we live and work – we strive to support healthy communities with heart, coming together for the benefit of all.

Empowering local nonprofit organizations through community contributions, outreach efforts, and support of programmatic initiatives related to:

We provide contributions via two charitable programs – cash contributions and medical mission trip product contributions.

Cash contributions are granted to 501(c)(3) nonprofits in support of select programs that align with our strategic focus areas.

Medical mission trip product contributions provide specific cataract surgery supplies to physicians who, in partnership with an eligible nonprofit, volunteer their time and talent to serve in overseas medical missions.

As process requirements and submission cycles may vary year-to-year, we encourage all applicants to annually review our eligibility guidelines, FAQs, and timelines prior to applying for contributions consideration.

Equity & Inclusion

Making Johnson & Johnson Vision an awesome place to work. For all.

From cultivating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive work environment, to prioritizing employee health and well-being, to developing and fairly advancing employees – we are building an environment where our talent can achieve their full potential.

Making a lasting impact by driving greater awareness around cultural issues, fostering more candid conversations, and advocating for increased inclusion and transparency whenever possible.

To forge this lasting impact – and a world where access to eye care is equitable for all – our teams should be as diverse as our communities. Each Johnson & Johnson Vision employee brings a unique set of experiences, cultural background, and thinking style that creates a richness in our company and for our customers. We foster a culture of inclusion for our teams to learn, grow, and feel confident bringing their whole selves to work.

By empowering our employees to combine their time and talent to make a positive impact on the world, we’re not only building the healthiest communities – we’re amplifying our Talent for Good. Led by Johnson & Johnson, Talent for Good offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for employees.

Created in 2015, the Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM2D (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing and Design) program is one such opportunity. This program has been a driving force in providing women and girls with tools and platforms to change the world.

As part of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, our employees engage in this important effort in many ways – including the WiSTEM2D University Series. Aiming to inspire women at pivotal moments in their university years to choose and stick with STEM2D majors and careers, female STEM2D professionals at Johnson & Johnson Vision share what it’s like to work in STEM2D, provide advice for women pursuing related majors, and much more!

Healthy Planet

It takes a healthy planet to have healthy people and communities.

As a global manufacturer, we recognize our role in helping to protect the planet. We’re committed to creating a more sustainable future – from developing products that use fewer resources to harnessing alternative energy sources.

Dedicated to creating this healthier world, we focus our environmental sustainability efforts on three key areas:

Tackling Climate Change

Optimizing our production and packaging to reduce our carbon footprint.

Reducing Waste

Limiting landfill contributions through recycling efforts and waste reduction.

Protecting Natural Resources

Protecting the environment and reducing our use of natural resources.

We are constantly innovating to find sustainable solutions to climate change – recognizing its crucial role in helping protect the planet – and are committed to achieving carbon neutrality in all our operations by 2030.3 One such solution includes moving to 100% renewable electricity in 2022, three years ahead of target.4

We’re tackling our environmental impact by reducing waste and focusing on recycling efforts – such as the ACUVUE® Contact Lens Recycling Programme, aimed at limiting landfill contributions and reducing the environmental impact of our packaging.

Launched across the United Kingdom (U.K.) as the first nationwide contact lens recycling scheme in 2019, the ACUVUE® Contact Lens Recycling Programme is available in Boots Opticians and select independent practices. To facilitate greater engagement and increase the volume of contact lenses going into recycling systems across the U.K. by up to 25%, the scheme – which has helped recycle over 8.5 million pairs of contact lenses, blister packs, and foil covers to date – is being updated and expanded in 2022.5

From combatting deforestation to reducing carbon emissions and our use of water, we share your passion about protecting the world around us. That’s why all ACUVUE® contact lenses guarantee 100% sustainable paper packaging (box and leaflet) certified by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative).6 We’re dedicated to putting the planet first and creating a sustainable future for us all.
