SC Johnson Sustainability Report

For more than 20 years, SC Johnson has set environmental goals every five years and regularly reported the results. This commitment continues with our 2013 Public Sustainability Report, which offers updates on our efforts to minimize landfill waste, further manage our footprint through greenhouse gas reduction, continue to improve product chemistry, and make life better for families.

Since 2000, SC Johnson has lowered its greenhouse gas emissions by 40.2% and reduced global manufacturing waste by 62%. The 2012/13 year brought significant investment in increasing our use of renewable energy, with the launch of two wind turbines at our largest global manufacturing facility.

We also introduced two new products in our Green Choices Marketplace that target reduced landfill waste: our Smart Twist™ cleaning system, a refillable system for concentrated cleaners, and Ziploc® Brand compostable bags for use in commercial composting programs.

Other highlights of the report include:

  • Smaller Footprint: SC Johnson has invested in 10 major renewable energy initiatives around the world over the last decade. With the installation of two new 415-foot-tall wind turbines at its largest global manufacturing facility, the company cuts 6,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
  • Less Waste: SC Johnson has recycled roughly 8.6 million pounds of waste at its largest global manufacturing facility in Racine, Wis., and seven SC Johnson sites are now zero landfill.
  • Better Lives: For years, SC Johnson has educated Filipinos about fighting dengue with its Baygon® and OFF!® products. We’ve reached 1.65 million households, visited more than 4,000 communities and conducted more than 1,500 dengue educational caravans in the Philippines.
  • Winning Products: SC Johnson’s newest concentrated cleaners feature a 63% savings in plastic compared to a standard spray bottle. The company has also saved 900,000 pounds of resin globally by using new Mr Muscle® bottles.
