How we create value

In everything we do in Global Procurement, we strive to be a trusted business partner creating value for our stakeholders, suppliers, customers, consumers, and the society at large 

Our aim is to ensure an optimized cost base and drive sustainability through strong collaboration with our suppliers and stakeholders. This we do by:

  • Reducing the environmental impact in the supply chain through innovation and continuous improvement

  • Ensuring that we partner up with highly capable and responsible suppliers that have an active risk mindset and high ethical standards

  • Driving efficiency and improving quality by leveraging data, analytic tools, and digital solutions

  • Ensuring goods and services are supplied on time and with the right quality to our worldwide manufacturing and business sites within the Essity Group

Our responsibility
