SC Johnson is a family-owned and managed business dedicated to innovative, high-quality products, excellence in the workplace and a long-term commitment to the environment and the communities in which it operates. Based in the USA, the company is one of the world's leading manufacturers of household cleaning products and products for home storage, air care, pest control and shoe care. It markets such well-known brands as GLADE®, KIWI®, OFF!®, PLEDGE®, RAID®, SCRUBBING BUBBLES®, SHOUT®, WINDEX® and ZIPLOC® in the U.S. and beyond, with brands marketed outside the U.S. including AUTAN®, TANA®, BAMA®, BAYGON®, BRISE®, KABIKILLER®, KLEAR®, MR. MUSCLE®, and RIDSECT®. The 126-year-old company, that generates $9 billion in sales, employs nearly 13,000 people globally and sells products in virtually every country around the world.
The company’s holistic approach to sustainability includes reducing resource use through renewable energy. Using innovative sources of green power such as cogeneration, wind power and even a burner/boiler system that converts palm shells, the remaining waste of the palm oil industry, into a fuel source, the company generates 40 percent of its global electricity from renewable energy sources and has reduced greenhouse gas emissions from its global manufacturing facilities by 26 percent since 2001.
