Essity has committed to achieve net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and have Science Based Targets for Scope 1, 2 and 3, encompassing both our own operations and our suppliers’ value chain. We have recently raised our ambitions for existing Science Based Targets in Scope 1 and 2.
Essity has set out a clear strategy and plan to achieve these targets. Action will be taken throughout the value chain, from raw materials, production, distribution, and consumer use to the management of used products. Essity is also part of the Business Ambition for 1,5°C campaign, whose climate targets are aligned with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement to reduce global warming. This initiative is supported by the CDP, World Resources Institute (WRI), WWF and UN Global Compact.
Through these actions, Essity contributes to UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 Sustainable consumption and production, SDG 13 Climate action and SDG 15 Life on land, as well as SDG 3 Good health and well-being
