Goal 3: Low carbon operations

Reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per unit of production output by 25%.

Goal 4: Responsible sourcing

Goal 5: Sustainable products

Double the positive impact that JM’s products, services and technologies make to a cleaner, healthier world.

Goal 6: Community engagement

The path to our vision

The route to a more sustainable future brings many challenges that must be tackled. Sustainability is an integral part of our strategy and governance. It is at the heart of our brand and our employee promise. It is engrained in our company values.

It is clear that society is becoming more aware and active in the drive for sustainable development. Consumers want to know that the things they buy are produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

We believe the sustainability credentials associated with our science-led solutions will become more and more attractive to customers and consumers.

Our contribution to the UN SDGs

The UN SDGs are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. They contain 169 sub targets to be achieved by 2030. When we were setting our own ambitious targets for 2025, we considered the UN SDGs and identified six of the goals where we can make the biggest positive impact, aligning them to our own objectives.
