Corporate Leadership Award

The Corporate Leadership Award honors a non-broadcast business for its extraordinary focus on community service and corporate social responsibility.

SC Johnson The 2020 Corporate Leadership Award goes to SC Johnson, a family-owned company, 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.

At SC Johnson, philanthropy and community support are commitments that go back to the beginning of this company’s 134-year history. In 1937, the commitment was formalized to begin giving 5 percent of all pretax profits to charities each year, and the company hasn’t stopped since. The primary giving focus is on partner and support organizations that serve or directly affect communities where SC Johnson has operations, focusing on social, education, environmental and sustainability and product donation initiatives.

In 2018, SC Johnson partnered with Plastic Bank to open nine recycling centers in Indonesia, each able to collect about 100 metric tons of plastic a year and provide opportunities for hundreds of local waste collectors. In October 2019, the partnership expanded, scaling up this model across five countries with a total of 509 plastic collection points. It’s estimated this initiative will collect 30,000 metric tons of plastic waste over three years. SC Johnson has started incorporated the Social Plastic® collected by Plastic Bank into their products.

More recently, SC Johnson stepped up to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative includes a wide variety of directed relief efforts to the front lines of the crisis and those most vulnerable.
