Essity has been included, for the third consecutive year, in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook. Within the review of more than 9,400 companies worldwide, the company is part of the top 10% selected for this year’s Yearbook.
S&P Global, an international financial and analyst firm, conducts this annual assessment of the world’s most sustainable companies. Each company responds to a comprehensive questionnaire that is analyzed along with public environmental, social and governance (ESG) data.
According to Magnus Groth, president and CEO of Essity, “Every day, more than one billion people use our products, services and solutions. Thanks to responsible business practice across the value chain and groundbreaking innovations, Essity and our customers are reducing their environmental footprint. We are pleased to see this important work recognized.”
To be listed in the Yearbook, companies must secure a rating in the top 15% of their sector, in addition to achieving a CSA rating in the top 30% relative to other companies in the same industry. Essity has met these criteria, cementing its position as a sustainability leader within its business.
