SCA: SCA and the UN Foundation Convene Fourth Annual Dialogue on the United Nation's Global Agenda

- SCA President and CEO Magnus Groth to address the power of
public-private partnerships in achieving the Global Agenda and
advancing hygiene awareness and standards globally

As part of its ongoing support of the United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals, leading global hygiene company SCA, in partnership
with the United Nations Foundation, today convenes the fourth annual
Global Dialogue. The United Nations Foundation launched the Dialogue
on the Global Agenda in 2012, bringing together business, government
and NGO leaders to collaborate and work together to advance the UN
Sustainable Development Goals.

"On behalf of SCA, I am excited to participate in a conversation that
aims to inspire new ideas and spark a global dialogue around all the
17 goals where hygiene, health and well-being play an important
role," said Magnus Groth. "Many of the United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals are closely linked with so much of our business. By
working together in public private partnerships, we can create a more
sustainable world and improved hygiene, health and well-being for
people around the world."

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals were outlined and
adopted in 2015 and SCA has remained committed to its role in driving
progress around the Global Agenda. Last month, SCA announced the
launch of its 2016-17 Hygiene Matters Report in partnership with The
Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC), a United
Nations body devoted to the sanitation and hygiene needs of the most
vulnerable people around the world. The Report looks at the economic
and societal impact of hygiene and includes findings from a new
global study to help raise awareness and encourage dialogue about the
connection between hygiene, health and well-being.

The United Nations Foundation Dialogue on the Global Agenda signifies
the next step in SCA's dedication to improve well-being through
leading hygiene and health solutions, and serves as an example of how
public-private partnerships can facilitate meaningful change in
communities around the world.

Groth will open the Global Dialogue by sharing insights around SCA's
commitment to hygiene and how economic, environmental and social
performance must become the standard for all corporate behavior
throughout the private sector. Global Dialogue participants will then
engage in discussions on ways the public and private sectors can
inspire decision-makers and thought leaders to advocate for the
Sustainable Development Goals in business, policy and society.
