SUSTAINABILITY

A Lot of Work Goes into Making Nothing

Our Sustainability Mindset

Reduction target for energy consumption per unit of production and overall carbon footprint year over year

Waste to landfill goal for all of our facilities
 

 

Advanced Analytics

We used advanced analytics to determine our utilization of resources and their environmental footprint. We provide internal team members analytics, information, and recommendations to assist them with making the most responsible decisions regarding our sustainable use of resources.

Looking Forward

We continue to seek new recycling opportunities and find new ways to use our resources more efficiently as we work toward all of our Sustainability Objectives.

Sustainability Spotlight: Facility Peer Reviews

Every quarter, each of our eight absorbent hygiene facility managers hosts a tour. He or she invites the other seven to the facility and lets them walk the floor. They point out new improvements, flag new processes, and, in short, answer one simple question: how have I gotten better this month, or where is our next opportunity?

“It’s a challenge. How can we be doing better? Which of us can find a new, innovative way to save. It gets pretty competitive to be honest.”

— Director of Manufacturing
