The global consumption of resources contributes to a growing scarcity of materials and an increase in emissions. At Essity, we have longstanding experience of working with resource efficiency.
Small streams make great rivers. By nurturing a culture of resource efficiency, we have successfully cut emissions from energy use by 15% between 2016 and 2021. When working toward 2050, we must leave no stone unturned and engage all employees on our journey to net zero.
