The Group is divided into four business units. In addition to the business units, Essity har established three global units - Global Hygiene Category (GHC), Global Hygiene Supply Tissue (GHS-T) and Global Hygiene Supply Personal Care (GHS-PC).

  • Global Hygiene Category (GHC) has global responsibility for customer and consumer brands and innovation in the hygiene area.
  • Global Hygiene Supply Tissue (GHS-T) has global responsibility for purchasing, prodution and technology
  • Global Hygiene Supply Personal Care (GHS-PC).

Essity's business units adhere to the principle of distinct decentralisation of responsibility and authority. The business units are fully responsible for developing their respective operations through established goals and strategies; a process that is also centrally coordinated.

The business units are responsible for their operating result, capital and cash flow. The position of the business and results are followed up by the entire Corporate Senior Management Team on monthly basis.

Each quarter, business review meetings are conducted where the management of each business unit personally meets the President, the CFO and others. These meetings function as a complement to the daily monitoring of operations. Through formal work plans and tems of reference, a number of issues of material significance are placed under the control of the CEO and the Parent Company's Board of Directors.
