Project Overview

Johnson & Johnson has developed a Global Aquatic Ingredient Assessment™ (GAIA) protocol to better understand how its products interact with water environments. GAIA analyzes the impact an ingredient might have on an aquatic environment and the fish and plant life that live there. Ingredients are evaluated against the GAIA criteria and given a score.

Project Results

By calculating how much of an ingredient is used in a product and the score of that ingredient, a product can be given its own score. For products with lower scores, the company works to improve the formulation to reduce any potential impact on aquatic life.
