At Essity we believe that the work to fulfill the UN Sustainable Development Goals will make the world a better place and we have chosen to prioritize goals 3, 5, 6, 12, 13 and 15, which are most relevant to our business and where we have substantial expertise and can make a contribution.
At Essity, we are dedicated to improving well-being through leading hygiene and health solutions. We contribute to better lives for individuals and communities around the world. We also strive to minimize our environmental impact, and are determined to develop products and solutions that use less resources and fit into a circular society.
To meet our ambitions and create sustainable value, we rest on three platforms. We are committed to be caring and daring, and act boldly on social issues that others fear to champion. We aim to create more value using less resources. Finally, we innovate and design products and solutions that fit into a circular society.
We minimize our environmental impact by making more from less, and innovate to develop products and solutions that fit into a circular society. By acting responsibly in our business we can make a difference - by ourselves and together with others.
Every year, Essity's integrated Annual and Sustainability Report reflects how deeply embedded sustainability is within our business. Building on this our 'Sustainability in brief' brochure gives a comprehensive overview of sustainability at Essity. It's available in several languages.
"Sustainability has always been at the core of Essity. Contributing to a better tomorrow is what drives our business forward"
- Magnus Groth, President and CEO of Essity.
External monitoring of Essity's sustainability work is constantly increasing. Fund managers' and investors' choice of strong sustainability performance companies is often based on external indexes and rankings.
