LIVING WITH INCONTINENCE

Since 2008 we’ve been taking steps through our TENA Protects Program to make every TENA product more sustainable. Converting to 100% renewable electricity, starting with our European production sites. Reducing our products' carbon footprint by 50 % in Europe by 2030. Step by step, to leave a better mark on the planet.
We're on a mission to reduce the environmental impact of our products and services, while also improving the life quality of millions of people worldwide. And with each new initiative we're innovating smarter designs, finding superior materials, developing new solutions to reduce waste, and making our energy use cleaner and more efficient. Here are just a few of the launches that have improved our carbon footprint in the last year.
A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies the potential environmental impact of a product throughout its life cycle. By integrating LCAs into our innovation work, we can identify ways to reduce the environmental impact of our products, and improve our carbon footprint. Thanks to insights gained from our LCA work, we've reduced the carbon footprint of our products by 11-33% since 2008, and we're on track to meet or exceed our goal of 50% in Europe by 2030.
We’re customers too, and just like you, we care about what goes into the things we wear, and their impact on the planet. To give you a better picture of what goes into our products, here’s a breakdown of the main elements, and their ingredients. You can also find the exact carbon footprint of most TENA products at the EPD International website, in the form of downloadable Environmental Product Declarations.
Pulp made of wood fibre from responsibly managed forests. The pulp is used in our pads and panty liners.
A thin, textile-like material. The term is used in the textile industry for materials that are neither woven nor knitted, such as felt.
Large-chain molecules that can be either natural or synthetic. For instance, plastic as well as your DNA consist of polymers.
Used for its moisture-retaining ability. Commonly used in pads, diapers and compresses.
Some of the world's most common plastic types. Used in a wide range of everyday products, from underwear to blankets.
Viscous liquids that harden quickly, making them ideal for binding together materials.
