UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The UN’s goals for a sustainable development for the planet were set up in 2016 with a clear vision for 2030. At TENA we have mapped our activities against six of these goals which are related to our own three goals: Well-being, More from less, and Circularity.

Through our business operations and expertise, we are committed to supporting the delivery of these SDGs. This enables Essity to contribute to a better world. By partnering with others who share the same challenges and opportunities, we will create synergies that contribute to achieving the SDGs.
 
We believe that work aimed at fulfilling the SDGs will make the world a better place at the same time as they create good business opportunities for companies around the world; not least in the fields of health, hygiene and sanitation, where we have outstanding expertise.
The prioritized SDGs are:
3. Health and well-being
5. Gender equality
6. Water and sanitation
12. Sustainable consumption and production
13. Climate action
15. Life on Land
