We are Kimberly-Clark....serving billions of people every day with great brands that make life a little easier and a lot better.
It's no surprise that our brands are instantly known to millions. After all, our brands are essential for a better life.
At home, or away from home, people can count on Kimberly-Clark Professional's washroom, workplace safety and do-it-yourself solutions.
Medical professionals turn to Kimberly-Clark Health Care for a portfolio of health and hygiene products and medical devices to care for their patients and staff.
So, no matter what their needs, people know that they can count on Kimberly-Clark products to improve their lives.
Manufacturing world class products while being responsible stewards of the environment and caring for our communities is not only what we do, it's the right thing to do. We integrate sustainability into everything we do.
Sustainability means to me that we operate Kimberly-Clark in a way that my family would be proud of what we're doing. So that we have a proper regard for the environment, we take good care of our employees and that we're responsible corporate citizens in the communities where we live and work.
Kimberly-Clark has made a choice in adopting sustainable practices for our business, both in how we work and conduct business every day. We realize sustainability is a journey, not only for us, but a journey that will need cooperative efforts from corporations, government and society.
Society problems are so large that governments alone can't solve them. Businesses have to participate with the government and what we are trying to do is play our part as Kimberly-Clark in solving those society problems by raising the bar on sustainability across the whole value chain.
For that reason, we launched Sustainability 2015. This new and broader strategy ignites the power of our brands and business with goals and initiatives to address the full spectrum of global sustainability issues.
Through our Kimberly-Clark Foundation, we have long-term partnerships with many charitable organizations that share our commitment to improving the health, hygiene and well-being of families around the world.
From donations to volunteerism, our employees are working together to engage the communities where they work and live.
We're working with well-known external organizations like Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund and the United Nations Global Compact to broaden our perspectives and get feedback on our sustainability strategy.
We work with all our stakeholders to help conserve our planet's resources and help make an impact in global society. From raw materials, our manufacturing processes, and our supply chain, and even at the end of our products' lifecycle, we're building sustainability into every facet of how we work and make products.
We're proud of our accomplishments. But, we know there is more work to do. As times change, so will our strategies as we work to confront constantly evolving challenges.
Caring has been one of our core values since Kimberly-Clark was founded 140 years ago. We sincerely care about our communities, our environment and the positive impact we're making on the future. It's who we are and how we work every day.
We are Kimberly-Clark. We are leading the world in essentials for a better life and we are committed to taking bolder steps to help make our world a better place.
