Minimising the carbon footprint of our products
We are constantly innovating to reduce the carbon footprint for our products. With meaningful changes to our manufacturing, superior fibres and smarter product design, we are working to significantly reduce the impact our tissue products have on the environment. One of our key commitments is to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions from energy and electricity in our production sites by 25% by 2030 from a 2016 base-year.
Keeping up the good work
At Essity, the company behind Velvet, we are continuously working to develop high-quality products and reduce carbon footprint at the same time. Between 2011 and 2018 we decreased our carbon footprint by 18% for toilet paper in Europe and we plan to keep up this momentum.
Working with the water stewardship
As well as reducing carbon emissions, water usage also features in our environmental targets. At the moment, all of the water we use in production is then cleaned and returned to the system. By 2020, our goal is to reduce water consumption and improve the quality of the water.
