Sustainability is inherent to the GOJO Purpose, Saving Lives and Making Life Better Through Well-Being Solutions. Through leading and learning, GOJO team members collaborate with customers, suppliers, partners and communities on how we can all work together to create a brighter future and healthier world.

One such collaboration is our relationship with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Safer Choice Program, which partners with businesses to help advance the use of safer products and technologies. And, I’m proud to share that GOJO has been named a 2017 EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year.

Living our Purpose not only has a positive impact on public health and the world in which we live, but it also allows us to find new ways to innovate to create Sustainable Value for all GOJO stakeholders. One such innovation is our PURELL® Surface Disinfecting and Sanitizing Sprays.

We developed our new PURELL® Surface Disinfecting and Sanitizing Sprays based on the principles of the Safer Choice program – developing a product that performs well and contains ingredients that meet strict safety criteria for both human health and the environment as determined by the EPA’s evaluation of the best available science. PURELL® Surface Disinfecting and Sanitizing Sprays, are EPA Design for the Environment certified, which follows the principles of Safer Choice. PURELL® Surface Disinfecting and Sanitizing Sprays were designed to be worry free for people and the planet while quickly killing germs including Norovirus, MRSA and cold and flu. A product that brings peace of mind.

This partnership with the EPA Safer Choice program demonstrates how through collaboration we can work to create Sustainable Value for our customers – developing products with ingredients that are better for people and the environment.
