Essity combate climate change and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by increased use of renewable fuels and programs for energy efficiency. Essity have committed itself to developing so called Sciene Based Targets based on the agreement at the Climate Meeting COP 21 in Paris that resulted in the global challenge to reduce emissions in order to keep the increase of temperature well under two degress Celsius.


  • We will reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and from purchased electricity and heating by 20% by 2020, with 2005 as reference year.

Minimized product impact

Reducing climate impact is not only about investing in new production technology. Equally important is a reduction in the product’s impact and, through this, contribute to UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12 for sustainable consumption.

Since the beginning of the 1990s, Essity has worked with life cycle assessments, which involve a complete environmental analysis of a product’s value chain, from raw material, production and transport to use and waste management. Our hygiene products have reduced their carbon footprint in recent years and we continue to work with resource-efficient products and new services for customers.

Designing products that cut consumption is an effective way to reduce the climate impact. The Tork XPressnap dispenser is designed so consumers can only take one napkin at a time and we guarantee a 25% reduction in napkin consumption. Tork SmartOne is another example that offers a reduction in tissue consumption by 40%. TENA Solutions is a service through which we can help nursing homes to optimize their incontinence care through an extensive analysis of operations. The result is improved well-being for care recipients, less waste and lower total cost.
