Way forward

All fresh wood based fiber raw material in our products and packaging will be FSC® or PEFC™ certified.

Continuously secure responsible use of other renewable ingredients and materials such as palm oil and /renewable plastics.

Outcome:

  • In 2018, 76% of the fresh wood based fiber raw material was FSC or PEFC certified. All remaining fiber fulfills FSC´s criteria for Controlled Wood which is a minimum standard. 

  • At the year end 2018, 71% of Essitys procurement spend was sourced from suppliers committed to the criteria specified in our Global Supplier Standard.
