Reducing environmental impact is essential to a sustainable future. We recognise the solution requires us to consider more than just what the product is made with. That’s why we look at the big picture.
Recycled fibre is part of the solution.
Recycling is an important part of a sustainable future, and throughout KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* we approach sustainability with this bigger picture in mind.
Sustainable forestry is part of the solution.
Kimberly-Clark commissioned an independent, scientific study to compare the overall environmental impacts between products made of virgin and recycled fibre.
Technology is part of the solution.
We developed a patented manufacturing technology that can reduce the total wood fibre needed to make tissue by up to 17%.
Packaging is part of the solution.
The environmental impact of our products does not end once they leave our factories. By being smarter about packaging design, we can reduce the total waste our customers have to dispose of.
Sustainable consumption is part of the solution.
We study how our products are used – and often wasted. For instance, we use Smart Dispensers in research to understand how different formats, different sheet sizes and different sheet thicknesses affect how much is used...
Manufacturing efficiency is part of the solution.
In 1994 we launched VISION, our global environmental program. This program sets global objectives in the areas of energy efficiency, water use reduction, waste minimisation, and landfill avoidance.
Continuous improvement is part of the solution.
We know there is still a lot of work to do. That’s why we have launched our internal SOURCE Initiative...
You can be part of the solution, too.
By choosing products designed with the big picture in mind, our customers can contribute to a more sustainable world.
