Smallest Environmental Footprint

Smallest Environmental Footprint

We believe we can make meaningful contributions to clean water and sanitation, climate action and responsible consumption and production.

Safeguarding Natural Systems

Better lives happen in healthy environments. Kimberly-Clark's success is dependent on innovating new ways to give consumers the essentials they need while safeguarding natural systems and the life they support.

To achieve the smallest footprint – and start to rebuild the natural systems we all depend on – we must focus our efforts and raise our ambition level in the impact areas our stakeholders and the latest science tell us to prioritize.

That means eliminating waste and recovering resources; protecting forests of high carbon, biodiversity, and cultural value; cutting greenhouse gas emissions in line with climate science; and building strong water stewardship practices where it matters most.

In some cases, this means shifting the emphasis – for example from waste reduction to circular solutions, or from minimizing water use to water stewardship in communities facing the greatest risk.

With our refined strategy, we challenged ourselves to reset our ambition level to drive action that we believe is proportionate to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
