Read about Essity's progress and ambitions in the 2018 Annual and Sustainability Report, now available on their website.
"In 2018, we strengthened our brands through successful innovations, improved our product mix, implemented price increases and intensified efficiency improvements and restructuring measures. We took actions in all parts of the business to increase profitability and offset the negative impact on earnings of the significantly higher raw material and energy costs. The work to contribute to a sustainable and circular society was rewarded. We qualified for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and were named industry leader in the Household Products sector. External factors made 2018 a challenging year, but with a strong customer focus and hard work we strengthened the business for the future".
