Two new sustainability accolades for Essity

Tork manufacturer Essity has earned a place in the latest Dow Jones list, one of the most prestigious sustainability indices in the world. And the company has also been rated the joint most sustainable company in Sweden by the country’s leading financial newspaper.

Essity qualified for inclusion in the 2020 Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index in the household products category, receiving high scores for its environmental and social reporting as well as its work with suppliers, brand work, innovation, and climate strategy. Also this winter the company gained joint first place in the Dagens Industri sustainability ranking, sharing the accolade with Swedish grocery giants ICA and Axfood. Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri has ranked the country’s most sustainable companies in association with Lund University every year for the past three years.

“The past year has demonstrated how important it is for us to all contribute to improving hygiene standards,” said Essity Professional Hygiene commercial director, Nathan Titheridge. “Sustainability encompasses a range of factors and Essity is committed not only reducing our environmental impact, but also priorities such as improving the well-being of people.”
