Tork Validates Carbon-Neutral Dispensers in U.S.

Contributed by BSM Staff

PHILADELPHIA -- The Tork brand is touting carbon neutral certification on a range of its dispensers, making it the first professional hygiene brand in North America to do so.

As of Oct. 1, eleven Tork carbon neutral dispensers in the U.S. will be produced with purchased certified renewable electricity, and the remaining emissions will be offset using verified credits from climate projects.

The carbon neutral status is achieved through a combination of carbon reduction and carbon offsetting across the entire life cycle – from raw materials to end-of-life.

"We are thrilled to offer the first range of carbon neutral dispensers in the market,” said Matthew Urmanski, VP Sales and Marketing NA at Essity. “Tork dispensers 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."

The Tork brand is part of global hygiene and health company Essity, recognized as a company with leading sustainability ambitions and targets. The Tork brand has been including a sustainable approach in its products and services since its origin in 1968.

Essity will reduce the carbon emissions for the 11 Tork dispensers by using purchased certified renewable electricity for the production. To reach carbon neutral, the company will offset the remaining carbon emissions through investments in verified credits from 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 50% for several systems. And from offering data sensors for improved cleaning routines to ‘Easy to Use’ certification3 and ADA compliance.
