The Tork brand now offers carbon neutral certification on a range of its existing dispensers. This is achieved through a combination of carbon reduction and compensation across the entire life cycle – from raw materials to end-of-life. The 27 Tork carbon neutral dispensers are produced with certified renewable electricity, and the remaining emissions are compensated with certified climate projects. The Tork carbon neutral dispensers are available in Europe2 as of May, 2023.
The Tork brand is part of global hygiene and health company Essity, recognised as a company with leading sustainability ambitions and targets3. The Tork brand has been including this sustainable approach in its products and services since its origin in 1968.
"We are thrilled to offer a carbon neutral range of Tork dispensers that are not only effective in providing great hygiene, but also reduce the environmental impact on our planet. This new certification will help our customers to meet their sustainability ambitions" says Reneé Remijnse, Director of Sustainability Communications at Essity.
Essity has already reduced the carbon emissions for the 27 Tork dispensers by using certified renewable electricity for the production. To reach carbon neutral, the company is now compensating the remaining carbon emissions through investments in certified climate projects with ClimatePartner. The selected projects reduce carbon emissions by supplying clean drinking water in Cambodia, providing energy efficient cookstoves in India, and supporting forest protection in Indonesia.
All Tork dispensers are designed with sustainability in mind. From using durable materials to enabling consumption reduction of up to 40% for several systems. And from offering data sensors for improved cleaning routines to ‘Easy to Use’ certification from the Swedish Rheumatism Association.
