Our Code of Conduct is the framework that helps us translate values into actions. Efforts to promote sound business practices, good working conditions and well-being all originate from the Code, but this is not where they end. To follow through on these efforts, we analyze risks, train employees, and evaluate our own plants and those of our suppliers.

Essity´s Code of Conduct is inspired by the company´s Beliefs and Behaviors that we are committed, we collaborate, we care and we have the courage to take the lead. Aligned with universal standards of business conduct as defined by the International Bill of Human Rights, ILO Core Conventions and OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the Code serves as a compass on individual and collective behaviour when employees are making business decisions or are faced with ethical dilemmas. The Code provides guidelines for Essity and its employees regarding business practiceshealth and safety, employee relationshuman rights, nature and community. In addition to the Code of Conduct, Essity also has a Global Supplier standard in place.


  • We will maintain compliance with our Code of Conduct. All employees will receive regular training in the Code.

  • We evaluate all our supply streams from a total risk perspective. By 2020, we aim to source 100% of our procurement spend from suppliers committed to the criteria specified in our Global Supplier Standard.
