Sustainability is about holistic perspective. For us, it is important to create a long-term balance between the needs of people and the environment. That is our starting point.
Over the years we have succeeded in making our diapers thinner, and today we have reduced the weight by almost a fifth.* A thinner diaper gives your baby more freedom of movement. A lighter product is also better for the environment. Then fewer resources are used, the amount of waste is minimized and transport becomes more efficient.
These are just a few examples of how we have managed to improve our diapers and make life a little better for you, your baby and our planet.
* We have reduced product weight by 19% since 2008, which reduces waste and unnecessary resource consumption. The changes in product weight are average values based on life cycle assessments for baby products.
It goes without saying that there is still much to do to contribute to a reduced climate impact. These are just some of the things we do.
When we talk about climate impact, we mean the total amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere as a result of activities linked to the production, use and waste management of our products.
We carry out life cycle assessments on an ongoing basis, which we use to calculate our climate impact. The results so far show that our efforts have paid off.
But we are not content with that. We have many thoughts and ideas about how to further reduce our climate impact. It is a tough challenge ahead of us, but we are sure that together we can make a difference. So that our children will be able to grow up on an earth that is healthy tomorrow too.
Libero was founded in 1980 in Sweden, but several decades earlier we started investigating how we can offer the best and most gentle diapers for children in the Nordics. SCA has since changed its name to Essity.
Today, Libero is part of the large Essity family with many brands and products in many different categories. Essity's sustainability work includes all the products we produce. If you want to know more about our strategy and our goals and achievements, you can read more here
