Essity enables more people to enjoy a fuller life. Our contribution toward Goal 3 includes developing sustainable products and services for hygiene and health, educating children, consumers, patients and care professionals, and preventing the spread of diseases and other health risks. Business value is also created by meeting societal needs.
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
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 Essentials Initiative, which encompasses most of the SDGs Essity contribute to.
Essity held the number one or two position in at least one hygiene product segment in about 90 markets.
Hundreds of million people use Essity´s products every day.
