Essity’s strategic objective is to contribute to a sustainable and circular society. Since December 2018 our targets for CO2-reduction have been approved by Science Based Targets.
The approved reduction goals includes absolute targets for energy, electricity, transports, raw materials, suppliers and waste. For energy use within the company and purchased electricity (scope 1 and 2), Essity commits to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2030 from a 2016 base-year. Essity commits to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from purchased key raw materials, transport, waste generated in operations and end-of-life treatment of sold products (scope 3), by 18% by 2030 from a 2016 base-year.
The Science-based targets initiative is a global collaboration with the aim to enable companies to cut their greenhouse gas emissions at a level that allows the world to halt global warming at 2o Celsius. For Essity, Science based targets provides a clearly defined pathway by specifying how much and how quickly we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in order to meet the 2o target.
