Sustainability Reports

Long before sustainability became a topic of widespread interest, Kimberly-Clark sought to continuously improve the way we run our business, socially, environmentally and economically. This commitment is one of the reasons Kimberly-Clark has earned the trust and respect of people around the world for more than 140 years.

Our vision to lead the world in the essentials for a better life is not limited to the products we provide. It also calls us to deliver them in ways that prioritize clean air and water, healthy forests and strong communities, while delivering shareholder value.

Since 2008 Kimberly-Clark Engineers Have Been Using Landfill Gas To Generate Power And Make Operations More Efficient
Landfills play a critical role in waste management, but as waste decomposes, it releases methane – a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. What if there was a way to minimize methane from seeping into the atmosphere? What if there was a way to put it to good use? Those are the questions our engineers have been asking.
