At Kimberly-Clark we're 100% committed to reducing the impact of our environmental footprint. Our Global Sustainability 2015 plan encompasses and activates the power of Kimberly-Clark's global businesses, brands and employees and is built around a framework of People, Planet and Products.
Our people includes our Kimberly-Clark employees and strategic partners as well as the communities in which we operate and live and we always look to create sustainable, socially responsible, long-term relationships.
Our planet must be looked after and in a world with finite resources Kimberly-Clark strives for responsible business growth and environmental sustainability.
Our products are designed and manufactured with environmental sustainability in mind, without compromising the quality we are known for worldwide.
Our sustainability strategy is a holistic way of weaving sustainable business practices into everything we do at Kimberly-Clark, and an integral component of our Global Business Plan.
We challenge ourselves to:
- Engage with people to build enduring relationships.
- Respect our planet and conserve its resources.
- Deliver quality products today and for generations to come.
These sustainability challenges are part of our everyday business activity and form an important component of Kimberly-Clark's company values.
Kimberly-Clark's sustainable business practices are woven into the fabric of our Global Business Plan with clearly articulated, ambitious metrics for all business units.
