At Essity we believe that the work to fulfill the UN Sustainable Development Goals will make the world a better place and we have chosen to prioritize goals 3, 5, 6, 12, 13 and 15, which are most relevant to our business and where we have substantial expertise and can make a contribution.
Essity, in partnership with The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC), has launched a joint research report on hygiene practices worldwide, Hygiene and Health Report 2018-2019. The initiative was established by Essity in 2008 to raise awareness of the connection between hygiene, health and well-being.
External monitoring of Essity's sustainability work is constantly increasing. Fund managers' and investors' choice of strong sustainability performance companies is often based on external indexes and rankings.
