Our Response to COVID-19

Delivering the Essentials for Care

Kimberly-Clark’s vision is to provide the world with essentials for a better life, and today, we know our consumers and our people are counting on us more than ever to fulfill that vision.

The past few months have been anything but business as usual. As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus, we’re seeing the profound impact it is having on human health, the global economy and to society at large. Kimberly-Clark has acted fast to delay the continued spread of the virus, and we’ve made the health and safety of our consumers, people and partners our number one priority as we work to provide the products the world is counting on to ensure hygiene and health.

Our efforts are guided by our value of Caring – for our people and their families, our consumers, and importantly, for those most in need right now. I want to share a few of the ways that we are responding to this global health crisis. From our supply chain teams working to safely produce product, to the #ShareASquare program that supports the United Way’s Worldwide Covid-19 Fund, we believe that there’s no shortage of kindness during times of challenge.

I am incredibly proud of the great teamwork exhibited by our 40,000 employees around the world who are doing their very best, and to our retail partners and consumers for inspiring us every day.
