Sick children can be a source of stress to the work-life-puzzle; a new international survey shows that this is the case for 81% of families. Simply washing your hands effectively prevents infections, particularly amongst creative kids in busy pre-school environments as they constantly use their hands to explore food, mud and more. So on Global Handwashing Day, October 15th, global hygiene brand Tork is launching a new tablet app to encourage pre-school children to wash their hands.
Few places are as packed with action, short lead-times and sophisticated choreography between individuals as a restaurant kitchen during busy hours. In addition to high-end cooking equipment and superior food preparation skills, there are many small details that are critical for chefs in the production of great food, for example flexible solutions for maintaining the hygiene levels required in a professional kitchen.
On July 19, 2012 SCA acquired the Georgia-Pacific EMEA business. The acquisition includes Georgia-Pacific's consumer paper products, personal care and away-from-home tissue businesses, as well as manufacturing assets across Europe, including leading consumer brands, private label product and away-from-home products such as Lotus Professional.
North America is one of the leading markets in terms of paper recycling. SCA recently developed a new program in the USA’s Northeast region to reinforce SCA and Tork’s strong sustainability credentials and help customers in their environmental responsibilities.
Towering above New York City, the Empire State Building is one of the world’s best known buildings and one of its most popular tourist attractions, with approx. 20 000 visitors per day in high season. Some 80 years after it was built, things are still happening on the inside. The past decade’s focus on sustainability and environmental upgrades has created a distinctive trend; the quest to create “green buildings”. Empire State Building is no exception.

Putting limelight on the need for accessible and hygienic public restrooms. On November 19th the importance of sanitation and good hygiene is celebrated with World Toilet Day.
All facilities seek to optimize their planning and purchasing process, and to keep their waste and environmental impact as low as possible. Though there are few facilities with the same extreme requirements as the remotely located research base on Antarctica.
As a market leader in healthcare hygiene solutions, Tork understands that the simple task of cleaning and drying hands at the right times and in the right way saves lives. Healthcare-associated infection (HCAI) is a major concern when it comes to patient safety. However, most infections are preventable.
SCA has set a goal to reduce 20 % of its CO2 emissions by 2020. Our tissue plant in Kawerau, New Zealand – where Tork paper towels, napkins and toilet tissues is manufactured – just managed to reduce its emissions and match that in a single stroke, by the double.
Tork products provide solutions in a great variety of situations – sometimes in unexpected ones. After the ecological oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, SCA Tissue North America wanted to help.
The Tork brand offers a complete range of products and services within hygiene and cleaning for away-from-home washrooms, healthcare, food service and industry.
