Where We’re Going

Jones Healthcare Group is committed to reducing our environmental footprint by strategically setting sustainable targets.

Our focus areas are based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations to transform our world.

By evaluating the key sustainability issues affecting our team members, clients, suppliers and other stakeholders, we identified the 11 SDGs where we can make the most impact, setting these as priorities across our global business.

Our Focus Areas

We participate in supplier sustainability assessments through EcoVadis and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

We review, measure and report progress on the following within our focus areas:


  • Climate – climate risk, greenhouse gas emissions and energy management
  • Water – water risk and management
  • Waste – waste management, recycling and recovery


  • -25% CO2 Emissions by 2030
