The purpose of Essity’s sustainability governance is to ensure the company’s commitments to its stakeholders, including customers, consumers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, investors, decision makers and representatives from society. The company’s commitments are expressed in targets, strategy and priorities. The Board of Directors has established sustainability targets that are regularly monitored and reported annually. Essity maintains an active and continuous dialogue with internal and external stakeholders to ensure priorities and methods over time. Based on well-defined areas of responsibility and follow-up, we ensure that we deliver on established sustainability targets. To tackle increasing sustainability challenges, Essity continuously develops its ambitions in dialogue with stakeholders and external experts.
Since sustainability is an integrated part of Essity’s strategy and operations, the internal audit also encompasses sustainability. Essity’s Annual and Sustainability Report is also included in our external auditor’s review. Read more on page 156.
