STOCKHOLM - Hygiene and health company Essity has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, one of the world’s most prestigious sustainability indices.

The company has qualified for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index in the Household Products category.

Essity received high scores for its environmental and social reporting, its work with suppliers, its brand work, its innovations and its climate strategy.

“Sustainability covers many areas in which Essity works broadly to increase well-being for more people, while continually reducing our environmental impact. In 2020 and during the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a great deal of focus on contributing to society by working for a better global standard of hygiene,” said Magnus Groth, President and CEO of Essity.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a division of S&P Global. The index, which is one of the world’s most prestigious sustainability indices, was launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability index. The companies are assessed according to economic, environmental and social performance parameters.
