In the Annual Report, President and CEO of SCA Jan Johansson had the following comments:
“In 2013, we strengthened our position as a leading global hygiene and forest products company and displayed a strong performance in terms of our strategic priorities: growth, innovation and efficiency. We became the majority shareholder in the Chinese tissue company Vinda during the year. Our extensive efficiency programs delivered according to plan and we can reflect back on a year of favorable sales growth and improved profitability.”
“Innovation and sustainability drive SCA’s business and, during the year, SCA launched some 30 innovations. One example is TENA Identifi, a system that makes it possible to analyze and customize incontinence solutions for nursing homes at an individual level. Innovation and sustainability are tightly interlinked insofar as they function as each other’s drivers,” says Jan Johansson.
