STOCKHOLM, March 16, 2021 /3BL Media/ — During 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on people and the global economy. Essity has had three priorities: care for our people, contribute to society and secure business success. COVID-19 and related lockdowns and restrictions had a negative impact on Essity’s sales. Nonetheless, in 2020, Essity achieved its highest operating profit (EBITA) and its highest EBITA margin ever. Vaccinations have started and market conditions will gradually improve. As a company, we are emerging from this stronger. Our vision to improve well-being through leading hygiene and health solutions is more important than ever,” says President and CEO Magnus Groth, Essity.

President and CEO Magnus Groth’s message about Essity’s priorities for 2021 can be viewed in the Annual and Sustainability Report 2020. A pdf version of the Annual and Sustainability Report can also be downloaded at
