GOJO Industries, makers of Purell hand sanitizer, has announced the next phase of its GOJO Sustainable Value strategy, which is designed to keep people and the planet healthy for years to come.

"Our GOJO Purpose and Values demand and inspire us to think holistically and deliver what we call GOJO Sustainable Value," said Marcella Kanfer Rolnick, GOJO Industries executive chair. "GOJO Sustainable Value strives to create social, environmental, and economic value for all of our stakeholders and holds us accountable for the impact of our actions and inactions. Each part of our Sustainable Value strategy connects to the others and moves us closer to realizing our Purpose of Saving Lives and Making Life Better through Well-Being Solutions."

This phase of the company’s sustainable strategy is focused on 4 priorities, according to a press release:

  • Clean chemistry: GOJO intends to be the leader in safe chemistry and has focused its innovation on Ecolabel-certified products in the B2B hand and surface hygiene industry. As a founding and ongoing participant in the Chemical Footprint Project, GOJO will continue to choose safe ingredients for both people and the planet, according to the press release.
  • Plastics & Circular Design: Plastic plays an important role in protecting and delivering GOJO products, but plastic pollution has become a serious environmental and human health challenge. GOJO recognizes the way it delivers and protects its products and is reliant on plastic today, and, in some instances, does not work well in a circular economy. Work in this area will transform how GOJO evaluates and utilizes materials in its packaging and dispensing systems over time, from incorporating recycled content and ensuring increased recyclability, to exploring alternative materials and delivery models, the company’s statement read.
  • Climate Resilience & Responsibility: GOJO has committed to setting short-term and long-term carbon reduction targets in alignment with the Science Based Targets Initiative’s Net-Zero Standard. The best-practice commitment will guide the efforts of the company to decarbonize across its entire chain and deliver lower carbon solutions to customers.

"We know the progress we'll make on these four pillars will lead directly to better health for people and the planet," said Carey Jaros, GOJO Industries president & CEO. "For more than 75 years, we've used science-based innovation to solve real human problems, setting new standards for efficacy and safety and inspiring others to develop solutions that increase overall well-being. This next phase of our Sustainable Value strategy stretches us to have an even greater impact on our customers and communities, and society as a whole."
