Essity works to break the silence around issues such as menstruation and incontinence. We want a society where everyone can fully participate. Essity’s contribution toward Goal 5 includes pursuing a global dialogue, making our knowledge about hygiene and health available to boys and girls and to customers and consumers, and ensuring access to affordable, sustainable hygiene and health solutions to contribute to a dignified life on equal terms.
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 and deliver feminine care and incontinence care solutions, related education and enabling technology to support also bold communication to break the silence.
We will further engage and leverage on partnerships, such as our collaboration with the Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC).
We will develop and provide enabling technology, in particular information and communication technology to promote and enable those.
We focus on breaking taboos in areas such as menstruation and incontinence. Educational initiatives are conducted in areas such as handwashing for children, menstruation and puberty.
