2020 marks the start of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs seek to end extreme poverty, address inequality, and achieve a climate secure world with sustainable cities and a circular economy by 2030.
Achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals demands that companies team up and cooperate to decrease climate change and increase circularity*. One important component, is an open dialogue to align research agendas and develop policy framework, which is why we are working with like-minded partners, such as IKEA, TetraPak and DSM Royal, within the Ellen MacArthur Foundation CE100 (Circular Economy 100) Network.
At Essity we believe that the work aimed at fulfilling the SDGs will make the world a little better at the same time as they create good business opportunities for companies around the world. Not least in the fields of health, hygiene and sanitation, where we have outstanding expertise. We at Essity are determined to do what we can to contribute to achieving the 17 SDGs.
