Governance

Managing our business responsibly means operating ethically.

We remain committed to our founders' core values of quality, service and fair dealing. And while business conditions can change, our commitment to high ethical standards remains constant.

That commitment allows us to secure the trust of our shareholders, employees and other interested parties by managing our business responsibly. This means identifying and managing risks as well as seizing opportunities.

Our board of directors and senior management are accountable for ensuring good corporate governance. Kimberly-Clark's board of directors has 11 independent members, in accordance with the New York Stock Exchange listing standards. Our chairman and CEO is the only board member not considered independent. Our Audit, Nominating and Corporate Governance, and Management Development and Compensation Committees consist entirely of independent board members. Our Code of Conduct and corporate policies inform employees that we expect consistent, ethical behavior and compliance with applicable laws. On October 20, 2015, Kimberly-Clark amended its Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct and corporate policies apply worldwide.
