Celebrating World Intellectual Property Day

Blog

Over the past twenty-five years at Kimberly-Clark, I’ve been privileged to see the power that intellectual property has to grow our business. And while most of our patented innovations are found on shelves around the world, much of Kimberly-Clark’s IP development occurs behind the scenes.

Kimberly-Clark and Deltares Use Science-Based Tools and a Local Approach to Bring Collective Action at the Basin Level

Blog

In 2018, after a three-year drought, Cape Town, South Africa, became the first major city to come within days of running out of water. As “Day Zero” approached, residents were limited to 50 liters of water a day. Businesses had to evolve processes to reduce water usage.

The Kimberly-Clark Epping mill is located just outside of Cape Town. The company knew that if Cape Town ran out of water it would be a threat to the business. Even more, it would be a threat to the surrounding community and Kimberly-Clark’s employees’ way of life.
