Responsible Supply Chain

Legal Policy Image

At Kimberly-Clark, everything we do is motivated by our vision to lead the world in essentials for a better life. This vision inspires our efforts to improve the lives of people through the products we sell, and to care for the communities where we live and work through the programs that we implement.

We have bold ambitions across five priority areas, and our suppliers are critical to helping us deliver them. We also have several programs focused on social and environmental compliance, risk management and supply chain resiliency - all designed to create more social, environmental, and business value.

Sustainability Compliance

At Kimberly-Clark, we focus on working with our plants and suppliers to meet our social compliance promises supporting human rights, labor rights, employee safety, anti-corruption and environmental protection. Our environmental team members from around the world collaborate to build capabilities, continuously improve our systems and standards, and assess performance gaps in areas including air emissions, chemical management, water and wastewater treatment, and waste management and beyond.

We communicate our expectations for social and environmental compliance to suppliers through our published Supplier Social Compliance Standards and Stewardship of Supplier Standards. Suppliers are asked to sign a Declaration of Compliance.

We invite you to continue to partner with us and share your best thinking and new ways of doing things as we continue to cultivate a responsible and sustainable supply chain.
