Customers and consumers must feel confident that all components of an Essity product and all fiber are derived through responsible forest management. This is the basis of our target for fiber. For us, it is of the utmost importance to ensure that the wood raw material used in the company’s operations is not sourced from controversial sources.


  • All fresh wood fiber-based raw material in our products will be FSC® or PEFC certified, or fulfill the FSC's standard for controlled wood.

Everyone who purchases products from Essity should feel secure about the origin of the raw material. This includes all wood fiber in the product, including the packaging. All fresh fiber must originate from responsibly managed forests – forests that are managed under good labor conditions and with respect for biodiversity.

All wood fiber must be certified according to FSC® or PEFC™ standards. Alternatively, the fiber is to meet the requirements of FSC Controlled Wood standards, which mean that the origin of the fiber has been controlled by an independent party, such as an auditor. This also applies to products, such as packaging and mother reels, that Essity purchases from other suppliers.
