The Importance of Environmental Responsibility

The Importance

of Environmental

Responsibility

At KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL*, we understand that

the way we use resources today will shape the world of

tomorrow. That’s why we’re building sustainability into the

very fabric of our business, focusing not only on products,

but also on our operations, communities and employees.

We examine our products’ whole lifecycle, from sourcing

through disposal, to create products that reduce our overall

environmental impact by reducing the use of resources at

every stage.


Reducing

Throughout the

Product Lifecycle

We strive to use less of the world’s resources so there’s

more left for the future. We recognize that continually

working to understand the environmental impacts of

our business, help us to prioritize and minimize those

impacts. Our solutions require us to consider more than

just what the product is made with, we look at how they

are manufactured, packaged, used, and disposed of.

We recommend products

designed to:

8 Reduce how much you use

8 Reduce how much you waste

8 Reduce how much goes to landfill

8 Reduce how much it all costs

Our Lifecycle Approach to Sustainability

We strive to design

products that reduce

consumption across the

whole lifecycle.

Final Disposal

Innovative products

combined with reliable

dispensing mean you can

reduce how much gets used,

wasted and thrown away.

Raw Materials

We are committed to

responsible sourcing of raw

materials and ensuring the

sustainability of the fiber

we use.

Use

Our high performance

products and systems aim

to help customers reduce

their usage.

We invest in new technology

and process improvements

to reduce the use of natural

more efficient ways of

their distribution.
