Estimates say that the global population will reach 8.5 billion by 2030.

And while more and more people are having a chance for a better life, the rise in individual prosperity increases demand on already constrained natural resources.

In view of this, we are adapting, moving towards circular products & services. The circular economy will play an important role in the design of our absorbent hygiene products.
Centred on a design-for-recycling concept (including packaging), we look at every aspect of the life of our products recycling infrastructure and partnerships, alternative bio-based materials, biodegradability and reduction of the harmful environmental effects of our products.

1100% sustainable packaging by 2025

We aim to have 100% of our packaging being recyclable, and we are committed to have a minimum of 30% recycled or renewable content in our plastic packaging by 2025. All our cardboard boxes should contain 100% recycled content.

2We improve the sustainability performance of our products

We aim to replace fossil-based materials by bio-based, recycled or non-plastic alternatives to reduce our carbon footprint and plastic consumption. We optimize design so that the output materials can be valorized by recycling or biodegradation.

Examples are menstrual underwear and a hybrid diaper.

3We will actively pursue end-of-life solutions on both recycling & composting

We will actively pursue end-of-life solutions on both recycling & composting.

Recent examples include:

4Move to zero waste to landfill

We divert production waste from landfill for all Ontex production sites, turning waste into resources. We aim to have a recycling index of 100% by 2025.
