Reliable management systems, which are certified by a third party, play an important role in Essity’s sustainability work. Essity uses ISO 14001 and EMAS (the EU’s Eco Management and Audit Scheme) as certified environmental management systems. A large number of production units are certified in accordance with ISO and/or EMAS. ISO 9001 is the most important quality management system used by Essity. Essity implements the international standard OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) to ensure the use of uniform processes within the entire company and that Essity’s units continuously improve workplace-related health and safety.
