Kimberly-Clark’s social impact programs aim to extend our brand leadership beyond functional and emotional benefits to deliver social benefits by tackling critical challenges facing the communities in which we live and work. By investing in innovative social programs, we’re helping give people access to basic essentials that will improve their lives.

Water is one of the world’s most vital resources and a key input material to Kimberly-Clark’s tissue manufacturing processes. As a result, we recognize that the communities surrounding mills experiencing water stress will have important social needs as well. Engagement at the local community level is helping to identify appropriate mechanisms to support these needs.
According to World Wildlife Fund (WWF), up to 58,000 square miles of forest is lost annually – the equivalent of 48 football fields a minute. The result of this deforestation is a threat to the estimated 1.6 billion people who rely on forests for their way of life, as well as to some of the most endangered plants and animals on the planet.
