STOCKHOLM, July 16, 2021-
Hygiene and health company Essity today presents new and updated sustainability targets including a commitment to develop targets to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest. This includes raising the ambition level of Essity’s current Science Based Targets. Other updated targets include sustainable innovations, occupational safety and responsible sourcing.
The net-zero ambition means that Essity will join the U.N. Global Compact’s “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” to develop targets to reach net zero emissions by 2050 for the entire value chain, in line with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) criteria. This includes an upgraded target in line with “Well-below 2°C” scenario and means the company commits to reducing its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions with 35% by 2030 from 2016.
