Essity receives numerous surveys and is invited to participate in many reports. We try to accommodate all stakeholder's questions as far as possible but believe that it is essential to be transparent and disclose this information publicly. That is why Essity’s extensive external disclosure of information is found in Annual and sustainability reports, Sustainability in Brief and here on essity.com. With all requests we unfortunately do not have the capacity to answer and reply to all inquiries.
Essity non-financial reporting system
Essity operates an extensive non-financial system for gathering and presenting data for individual production facilities and entire business units. The system allows us to analyze data, describing how the company uses energy, water, transport and raw materials, and to monitor waste and emissions. In addition, social data such as safety data is also part of the system.
The data is used for internal control and monitoring, external benchmarking and as a tool for evaluating acquisitions and major investments.
We report in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, G4 Core. The GRI indicators cover Essity manufacturing operations and most office locations, but do not include centralised corporate functions.
