Baby with parents

Babies make the world a better place for us all. That’s why Pampers is committed to making the planet a better place for them. We want to see a world where babies everywhere continue to grow and develop in a happy, healthy and sustainable way. Afterall, caring for the happy, healthy development of babies has been at the heart of everything we’ve done for over 50 years, and sustainability is an essential part of that promise. We are taking steps forward every day like little children learn to walk and we’re restless to do more. Caring for every baby and caring for their planet continues to be our commitment for today and tomorrow.

Caring for Every Baby

We will continue to develop nappies and wipes that are safe, high quality and performing that you can confidently trust.

Pampers nappy

You put your trust in us, and we don’t take that for granted. Our commitment to quality, safety, hygiene and health remains uncompromising, from the careful sourcing of our ingredients and materials, to the numerous checks we make every day on each and every nappy we produce.

We continue to work with hundreds of parents, healthcare professionals, scientists, hospitals and localcommunities to ensure Pampers products continue to meet the needs of babies, whilst maintaining trust from parents.

We want to give every baby in need the best start in life with the help of our products and partnerships. We are committed to providing our smallest nappies to the 1 million babies born before 28 weeks of gestational age each year.

Pampers heart

These little fighters aren’t fully prepared for birth and therefore require a little extra support to grow and develop. With this in mind, we have designed our smallest nappies especially for them in collaboration with neonatal nurses.

Our Preemie Protection line-up not only provides the trusted protection and comfort of Pampers, it is also designed to minimize disruption, enhancing sleep and enabling kangaroo care – skin-to-skin contact with parents – needed to support his or her healthy development.

Furthermore, our 15-year partnership with UNICEF has helped protect babies against maternal and neonatal tetanus, eliminating this disease in 26 countries, and helping save the lives of almost 1 million newborns.*

Caring for the Planet

Many of us at Pampers are parents ourselves, and we share the belief that parents shouldn’t have to choose between what’s good for their baby and what’s good for the planet. That’s why we’re on a journey to reduce the environmental footprint of our products.

We continually strive to find ways to reduce our environmental footprint with everything from how and where we source our materials, the manufacturing process, our packaging, and the products we offer.

Here are some of the steps we’ve already taken:

Pampers light bulb

We’ve made our products lighter, halving nappy weight while doubling absorbency over the past 50 years.

Pampers pack

We’ve made our products and packaging more sustainable. The cellulose in our nappies and our box paper are made from materials from FSC certified forests and other controlled sources** and we have introduced our Pampers Pure nappies and wipes, which contain plant-based materials from responsible sources. We are now making our boxes out of 100 % recycled carton.***

Pampers plant

We seek renewable production. We purchase 100% renewable electricity in our manufacturing sites across Europe*****. And we produce our nappies close to you at our own manufacturing sites. In fact, 100% are made in Europe.****

We are committed to leading new sustainable solutions to minimize waste of used nappies and wipes – and not just Pampers. Steps are already in place to launch nappy recycling in five cities by 2023.

We know all too well how quickly babies grow up. Blink and you’ll miss it. But because their development doesn’t stop, neither will we. We’ll continue to take steps in our journey to contribute to a more sustainable, happy, healthy future for every baby. Of course, like a baby learning to walk, those steps won’t always be easy, but we’re committed to taking them, one foot in front of the other.

Because caring for babies’ happy, healthy development means caring for the planet they’ll grow up in.
