MUMBAI,9 October, 2019: In support of the Indian government’s call for a nationwide shramdaan for its ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ initiative, on 2nd October, Johnson & Johnson mobilized employees from its pan-India network of offices and manufacturing units towards this sustainability mission.
Over 230 employees across Johnson & Johnson India offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Aurangabad and Baddi in Himachal Pradesh participated in waste collection drives in populous areas around each city. Several employees were also joined by their families for the activity. Over 1,057 kilograms of post-consumer plastic waste was collected and re-directed to recycling centers for proper treatment and disposal.
“We laud the Indian government’s sustainability initiatives, and as responsible corporate citizens, remain committed to the efforts to reduce the reliance on single-use plastic,” says Vikas Srivastava, Managing Director, Consumer India at Johnson & Johnson. “At Johnson & Johnson, we encourage and support civic improvements that help protect the environment and natural resources,” he added.
