Essity recognized for leadership in sustainability, named to CDP's prestigious A List


The global non-profit environmental organisation CDP has once again recognised the hygiene and health company Essity for its leadership in sustainability. For its efforts in combating deforestation, the company has been named to CDP's prestigious A List.

Based on data reported through CDP's 2022 Forests questionnaire, Essity was one of only a few companies to receive a 'A' - out of over 10,000 companies evaluated.

With its ambitious efforts to prevent deforestation and promote responsible forestry, Essity is a leader in terms of environmental objectives, actions, and transparency. Essity works to combat deforestation through the Consumer Goods Forum and its Forest Positive Coalition of Action, in which Essity, in collaboration with other companies and organizations, systematically addresses deforestation and forest destruction while also promoting biological diversity.

“Essity recognizes the challenges, our responsibility and possibility to take forest positive action. We do so through innovation to use less virgin fiber, through making sure that all fiber that we use comes from responsible forestry and by collaborating with partners to achieve a larger positive change in the fight against deforestation, says Magnus Groth, President and CEO of Essity.

The CDP's annual environmental data collection and assessment process is widely regarded as the gold standard for ensuring the transparency of companies' environmental activities.
