By 2030, 40% of the world's population will live in water-stressed areas. One of those areas is Cape Town, South Africa.
Kimberly-Clark partnered with Deltares to develop an innovative dashboard called WaterLOUPE, which can be used to see current and future risks to water availability. The company hosted over 30 local, municipal and NGO leaders at its Epping mill last month for a water scarcity workshop to encourage collaboration and align objectives.
Kimberly-Clark plans to bring the WaterLOUPE project to all of the water-stressed regions in which it operates.
Nuestro enfoque de la gestión del agua se basa en tres elementos clave: proteger la calidad del agua, mejorar la eficiencia en el uso del agua y participar de forma colaborativa en nuestras cuencas.
Creando Agua Dulce en el Desierto de Atacama de Chile
La planta de desalinización de nuestro proyecto Quebrada Blanca Fase 2 será el primer uso a gran escala de agua de mar desalinizada para la minería en la región de Tarapacá en Chile, en vez del agua dulce. A plena capacidad, esta purificará aproximadamente 1,300 litros por segundo.
Our approach to water stewardship is based on three key elements: protecting water quality, improving water use efficiency and engaging collaboratively within our watersheds. Check out some of the projects our team is working on to make water stewardship a top priority.

These four-year-old twins attend class at the only school in their village. Here they are using a church as a classroom. They are lucky to live near the school and water pump, which they walk to every morning to get water. Other children from the villages around Lake Victoria in Uganda have to walk for up to two hours to make it to school, and many have to stay at home to help their parents in the garden by carrying water.
Water is a valuable natural resource and the primary element in many of Kimberly-Clark’s manufacturing processes. This World Water Day the company is releasing an inside look at the implementation of WaterLOUPE at one of its twelve mills located in high water-stressed areas. WaterLOUPE is a water scarcity dashboard developed by Kimberly-Clark and Dutch research institute Deltares that provides critical data to inform local communities on water risk, availability and the use of water in scale and over time.
