Supplier Diversity

We value relationships with a broad spectrum of suppliers that help us provide the essentials for a better life.

We actively solicit businesses for products and services. Our company works with the National Minority Supplier Development Council, the Women's Business Enterprise National Council, the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and other sources to locate qualified and value-added suppliers. As a result, we can choose among enriched suppliers who are competitive, innovative and focused on providing solutions for our customers. Included in our program are:

  • Certified minority-owned businesses
  • Certified woman-owned businesses
  • Certified lesbian/gay/bi-sexual or transgendered-owned businesses
  • Certified disadvantaged businesses
  • Certified HUB Zone businesses
  • Veteran-owned and service disabled veteran-owned businesses
  • Small businesses

What we consider when establishing new suppliers

Sourcing decisions vary on individual business needs, potential competitive advantages and underlying business risks. Key considerations include a supplier's ability to:

  • Provide technology that offers unique protective features and can be the basis for product and process innovations
  • Offer adequate capacity and flexibility to satisfy the range of our defined needs without interruption or dependency on Kimberly-Clark for long-term contracts or capital commitments
  • Continuously improve and minimize conformance variability
  • Provide the best total value
  • Be a trusted partner to help us produce quality and value products
  • Provide diversity to match more closely to our consumer base
