Sustainable cotton sourcing
A few of Essity's products contain cotton fibers. The volumes are limited, but as cotton production in certain countries could be associated with sustainability risks, Essity's ambition is that all sourced cotton or material containing cotton fibers should be sustainable. This means that the cotton is certified, organic, recycled or from a low-risk area. Essity is a member of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), the largest sustainability program for cotton. BCI is Essity’s preferred program for more sustainable cotton, though other programs are also acknowledged.
