HLM healthy practices

Maintain healthy practice

We believe in promoting a culture of integrity, ethics and transparency to build trust and create meaningful, long-term value for all stakeholders.

The Kenvue Purpose — realize the extraordinary power of everyday care — guides how we treat our people, innovate, conduct business and design products. We are committed to continually earning a place for our products in consumers’ hearts and homes, and we do this by delivering products that support healthy people and a healthy planet.

Sustainable product innovation

Science-backed innovation and scientific insights are core to our product development process and enable us to successfully introduce new products that meet the dynamic and diverse health and well-being needs of the global consumer marketplace. With the use of new robust measurement tools, we aim to manage the impacts of our products, across our global value chain and throughout the lifecycle of our products. A new internal Kenvue assessment tool, Sustainable Innovation Profiler, will assess how new products deliver against our Healthy Lives Mission commitments, seeking to future-proof products by promoting the adoption of sustainable ingredients and packaging materials.

Our goals & commitments:

  • 75% of new product development,1 using scientific principles,2 will have an improved environmental performance3 by 20304

What gets measured

Ingredients are everything

Using safe, healthy ingredients is especially important when creating products that are part of people’s everyday routines. All ingredients are carefully selected and tested and must pass safety and quality requirements. Our objective is to ensure that the quality, purity and manufacturing of our products meet international, national and local goverment regulations, industry standards, and out internal policies. Our sourcing and quality assessment teams assess our raw material suppliers and contract manufacturers and aim to only work with vendors that meet our safety and quality standards.

We operate with openness, maintain business and workplace integrity, and contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
