This offers more people an opportunity to work, better conditions to provide for their families and increased well-being and quality of life. We will make our knowledge about hygiene and health available to customers and consumers and ensure access to affordable, sustainable solutions to help them lead a healthy and dignified life.

In markets in which we operate, we will:

  • Provide information and implement education programs on hygiene and health

  • Strive to raise hygiene and health standards

Way forward

Essity will continue to develop sustainable hygiene and health solutions. We will also offer related education and deliver it to current and new consumers and customers. 

We will continue to identify potential areas for value creation in relation to health and well-being - for example new hygiene and health innovations. 

We will work with partners (e.g. Governmental organizations, NGOs etc) to identify unmet needs, develop solutions and remove obstacles.

Leverage our Breaking barriers to well-being, which encompasses most of the SDGs Essity contribute to.
