Johnson & Johnson is a founding Green Power Partner and an ongoing member of the Green Power Leadership Club. The company was honored as a Green Power Partner of the Year in 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2007 and received a Green Power Leadership Award in 2002 and 2004. In its quest to become a corporate leader in addressing the challenge of climate change, Johnson & Johnson has committed to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions seven percent below 1990 levels by 2010. To achieve this goal, Johnson & Johnson is investing in green power as an alternative to fossil fuel energy. Johnson & Johnson's green power use includes the direct purchase of wind power, on-site solar PV, and the purchase of renewable energy certificates from wind power and biomass facilities. Johnson & Johnson believes that the investment in green power not only benefits the environment, but is also a good business decision because it provides the company with a reliable and stable supply of energy. The size of the company's green power purchase, along with its willingness to share its experiences, has made Johnson & Johnson a leader in green power procurement.
