Global climate change is one of the defining challenges of our time. As one of the world’s leading hygiene and health companies, Essity has joined the Business Ambition for 1.5 degrees and is committed to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. We are building on our near-term targets for 2030 and accelerating our efforts on the journey to net zero.
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.
