At Kimberly-Clark, our vision is to "lead the world in essentials for a better life”. Sustainability is inherent to this vision and challenges us to create a better future by being responsible stewards of the environment and positive contributors to our communities.

Our sustainability vision for 2015 and now 2022 reflect the changing landscape for Kimberly-Clark and the communities we serve. It builds on the success of our previous enterprise-wide sustainability programs, which began in 1994 and helped drive our environmental performance.

‘Sustainability 2015’ touches on Kimberly-Clark’s most material environmental and social impacts, built around three main pillars: People, Planet, and Products. It comprises broad-reaching social platforms, such as addressing the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, as well as more specific objectives, such as reducing our energy and water use. By integrating these elements into our company’s agenda and Global Business Plan, we are working to sustain healthy working environments and communities.

An integral component of our business strategy, it weaves a sustainable business mindset and practice into everything we do, and it allows opportunities for our employees, businesses and brands on a global basis to take an active role in achieving our vision.
