Essity Teams With UN to Address Antimicrobial Resistance

July 8, 2021

Essity has joined a United Nations (UN) Foundation Cross-Industry Expert Working Group on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Established in 2020, the UN’s council is a first-of-its-kind international group composed of private sector AMR experts and organizations involved in antimicrobial stewardship. Essity will collaborate with other group members to develop global policies and best practices, share research and technology, and highlight the role of business in achieving health security goals.

“To preserve life-saving antibiotics for current and future generations, we need to take action on a global level. As a hygiene and health company with sales in 150 countries, Essity addresses issues where hygiene and health are part of the solution. Working together with the public sector and other companies makes it possible to accelerate change with higher impact in the fight against AMR,” said Magnus Groth, Essity president and CEO.
