Our Purpose-driven Commitment Accelerates Sustainable Value
GOJO has a 66-year history of leadership in improving well-being through hand hygiene and healthy skin.
The GOJO Purpose – Saving Lives and Making Life Better through Well-Being Solutions – drives our commitment toward greater social, environmental and economic sustainability.
While often viewed as an environmental matter, GOJO believes all three domains of sustainability must be addressed by organizations in order to make significant and meaningful change.
As the global leader in hand hygiene and skin care solutions for away-from-home markets, we create products, processes and programs that achieve measurable results in all three domains.
For instance, in partnership with the respected non-profit organization Matthew 25: Ministries, we donate unused soap for repackaging and distribution to hospitals and schools in Haiti, Nicaragua and other countries where access to basic hygiene is limited.
Through this collaboration we advance our social sustainability goal by helping improve the health and well-being of people in dire need.
At the same time we minimize our environmental impact by reducing the volume of material sent to landfills.
In acknowledgement of our ongoing contributions, GOJO earned the "Green Giving Award" from Matthew 25: Ministries in 2013 – for the second consecutive year.
This relationship is just one example of how we collaborate to achieve sustainable value, a guiding principle we employ to make sure that our work creates social, environmental and economic value for our organization and our stakeholders.
It's through this lens that all decisions are made – including those involving the products we bring to market.
Products That Sustain Life… Made in Sustainable Ways.™
GOJO hand hygiene solutions support the objectives of social sustainability by reducing risks to human health and well-being.
In addition, we continually improve our production process and ensure that GOJO hand hygiene solutions are made in ways that are better for human health and the environment.
Sustainable Ways of Working (SWOWSM) is about integrating sustainability thinking into our daily work to achieve measurable results.
SWOW has helped us put this commitment into everything we do – from our green chemistry practices, material selection and product design to the ways our products are produced, delivered and used.
A recent example of SWOW thinking is the innovative GOJO® LTX™ Dispensing System, a state-of-the-art touch-free system that delivers sustainable value in support of our customers' sustainability goals in numerous ways, including:
•Smart electronics that extend dispenser battery life, eliminating the need to change batteries during the life of the dispenser in most installations.
•Sealed PET refill bottles that use 30 percent less material than traditional HDPE bottles and are easy to recycle.
•A complete portfolio of green certified, high-performing soaps and sanitizers designed to meet or exceed leading third party standards to protect human health and the environment.
•Intelligent and aesthetically appealing dispensers that encourage responsible use and promote good hand hygiene.
Sustainability is an ongoing journey at GOJO.
With the world's largest portfolio of green certified soaps and sanitizers, GOJO continues our commitment to lead the world toward a healthier future.
