Kimberly-Clark Australia is committed to progressing reconciliation in Australia. In 2022, we completed our inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and we are proud to commence the next phase of our reconciliation journey through the launch of our Innovate RAP. This plan outlines the actions we will take over the next two years to help create a more just and equitable future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Kimberly-Clark Australia acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Australia, and pays respect to their Elders past, and present. Our Head Office is located on the land of the Cammeraygal people and our Australian manufacturing site in Millicent is located on the land of the Boandik people. However, as an organisation with national reach, we extend our acknowledgement and respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and express our support for the continuation of their cultural, spiritual and educational practices.
Our Innovate RAP builds on the foundations of our Reflect RAP and deepens our organisation’s ongoing commitment towards reconciliation, driven by our vision to ensure equal access to better health, hygiene, and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
At Kimberly-Clark, we are not only passionate about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our own workplace, but in our community, too. Our global purpose is Better Care for a Better World, and in 2020, we set a global goal to improve the lives of one billion people in underserved communities by 2030. One of the ways we will act on this goal in Australia is by contributing towards equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through maintaining support for long-term partners like the Galiwin’ku Baby Hub via the Australian Red Cross, and investing in new programs and partnerships to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We look forward to sharing our progress with you.
