In 2020, Kimberly-Clark launched new global 2030 Ambitions, which will see us improve 1 billion lives whilst halving our environmental footprint. Since then, in ANZ, we have positively impacted over 2 million lives and developed long-term partnerships with some of the most impactful organisations in our region. We launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan in 2021, which is Kimberly-Clark Australia’s commitment to progressing reconciliation in Australia.
We're working to reduce our environmental footprint, too. We've set a local goal to be carbon neutral in our ANZ operations by 2030 and reduce our use of new, fossil fuel-based plastics by 50%. In 2021, we launched five new sustainable product innovations and worked with the South Australian Government and CSIRO on Australia’s first nappy recycling feasibility study.
These are just a few examples of how we’re showing care for people and the planet; more detail on these and other initiatives can be found in our latest Sustainability Stories for Australia and New Zealand. We know there’s a lot more to be done, and we look forward to sharing further updates as we progress.
