People all around the world trust our products. So we know we have a great responsibility
to protect the environment and care for communities.
FSC® shares this commitment with an emphasis on social engagement. FSC®
encourages its members to work together in the regions where they live. It also
has stringent standards protecting the rights of Indigenous Peoples by requiring
informed consent from them over their lands’ resources.
In addition to promoting responsible forestry, partnering with FSC® reinforces
the social promise of our brands to our consumers, customers, employees and communities.
Our leadership role
Kimberly-Clark is a global representative for tissue companies that work with FSC®.
We’re active on the FSC® General Assembly, which explores how revisions
to FSC®’s standards, guidelines and statutes can address new challenges. And Kimberly-Clark’s
Senior Director of Global Sustainability, Lisa Morden, serves on the U.S. FSC®
Board of Directors.
“It’s important to us that the materials going into our products reinforce our sustainability
goals,” said Morden. “So even as we increase our use of alternative fibers, we’re
using environmentally preferred FSC®-certified or recycled fibers, which
help us reduce our impact on the environment.”
