Who We Support
Kimberly-Clark focus charitable support on causes that strengthen the world’s families, the communities where we operate and the environment.
The World Wildlife Fund is recognised worldwide as a symbol of conservation and sustainable development . Kimberly-Clark is proud to be a member of the WWF and supports it’s mission to increase the proportion of forest products used from responsibly managed and independently certified forests.
In 2010, Kimberly-Clark Australia began collaborating with WWF at a local level, which promotes responsible forest management and trade to reduce the impacts of pulp and paper sector and conserve the world’s valuable and threatened forests, partially through participation in WWF’s Global Forest & Trade network.
Kimberly-Clark Professional* Australia works with UNICEF to promote the critical issue of hand hygiene in HealthCare. In 2010, Kimberly-Clark Professional Australia made a $5,000 donation to UNICEF’s Water and Sanitation Appeal in conjunction with our ‘Hand Hygiene Pledge’ program. This program educated HealthCare Workers on the importance of hand hygiene and encouraged them to make a non monetary pledge for hand hygiene – symbolising their focus on keeping their patients free from the spread of infection. Kimberly-Clark Australia matched each pledge with a monetary donation to UNICEF.
Unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation are two of the biggest problems facing impoverished people in many parts of the world. UNICEF’s Water and Sanitation Program has already made real progress in this area, helping establish facilities in schools and homes and creating fresh water supplies where needed.
