February 9, 2024

Essity has been included on global nonprofit CDP’s A List for its work in combating deforestation.

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is recognized as a standard for corporate environmental transparency. Of the more than 21,000 companies that were evaluated, Essity is one of a small number of companies named to the A List for forests.

“Responsible fiber sourcing and forest management is central to Essity to prevent deforestation. We are also innovating to use less wood fiber investing in alternative fibers. In Mannheim, Germany, Essity has the first production facility in the world that uses wheat pulp on a large scale to produce tissue. A breakthrough innovation that makes us less dependent on wood fiber and reduces our impact on the environment,” said Magnus Groth, Essity president and CEO.
