Kimberly-Clark Corporation recently published its annual report on sustainability, providing a comprehensive update on the company's efforts and introducing new sustainability priorities and goals through 2022.
Program focuses on restoring dysfunctional school toilets for the hygiene, safety and dignity of children.
Naina aged 13, no longer has to wait for 8 hours to reach home before she can use a clean, safe toilet and does not miss school during her periods any more. Bhaskar, having stumbled over broken tiles and pot holes would shamefully resort to using the shrubs outside his school. Not anymore, because his school toilet is now repaired and well lit-up.
In its eighth Sustainability Report, the company accounts for its sustainability strategy focused on three pillars: People, Planet and Products.
K-C Argentina has published its Sustainability Report which provides an overview of its economic, social and environmental performance from January to December 2015.
“Today, sustainability at K-C covers both economic growth and constant innovation of new categories and products, as well as the positive impact on the community and the environment”, explained Pablo Latrónico, Vice President of K-C LAO-Región AUSTRAL.
Called ‘Toilets Change Lives’, the initiative is a part of the company’s global sanitation drive
New Delhi: Multi-billion dollar personal care products firm Kimberly-Clark is hoping to change the approach and impact of private sector initiatives in the sanitation space. Instead of building toilets, it has taken up refurbishing and rebuilding work on existing not-in-use toilets.
The initiative, in partnership with not-for-profit Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) India, was launched on 28 April at a primary school in the Chandanhola area of Delhi.
As consumers and NGOs last year called for boycotts of products linked to deforestation and the haze crisis in Southeast Asia, Kimberly-Clark is one of the firms that emerged unscathed from the consumer movement.
Sustainability: Strategies and targets
At Kimberly-Clark, sustainability strategies are set every five years and consist of specific targets under three ‘pillars’ – People, Planet, and Products. These involve investing in social programmes, reducing the company’s environmental footprint and innovating to extend the life of its products and packaging materials.
