Essity publishes its Annual and Sustainability Report for 2019
Hygiene and health company Essity has today published its Annual and Sustainability Report for 2019 on www.essity.com
“2019 was a year of strong growth and improved profitability. Through price increases, improved product mix, higher volumes and cost savings, we have more than offset the significant headwinds over the past two years from higher raw material costs. Successful innovations and investments in sales and marketing have strengthened market positions and brands. As part of ongoing efforts to contribute to a sustainable and circular society, we established additional sustainability targets for packaging with a special focus on plastic packaging. We are working actively to break barriers and increase knowledge of hygiene and health”, says Magnus Groth, President and CEO of Essity.
