Additionally, the role will create a long-term vision to ensure JNJ EHS&S strategic goals and plans can be maintained inclusive of external supplier site EHS&S aspects and impacts that may contribute to JNJ supply chain and outwardly facing EHS&S goals and objectives.  Where absent, the role will require the development of systems to interface with JNJ Product Stewardship requirements both legal and internally required.  


With a holistic approach to EHS&S, this role will create and drive new levels of engagement and strategic partnership with an important external supplier.  This position will report to the EHS&S Due Diligence and Integration Director.
