H6. Packaging

Essity’s target for 2025 is that the company’s packaging is to be 100% recyclable and is to comprise at least 85% renewable or recycled material. This target applies to both paper and plastic packaging and is based on usage in Essity’s wholly owned production facilities. Consumption mainly comprises bags and flexible plastic film for plastic packaging as well as corrugated board and board for paper-based packaging. During 2019, the company’s packaging for hygiene and health products comprised approximately 68% renewable or recycled material.
