Kimberly-Clark Corp, parent company of Kimberly-Clark Professional, has joined the U.S. Plastics Pact.
A collaborative effort organised by The Recycling Partnership and the World Wildlife Fund, the U.S. Plastics Pact is a network for stakeholders across the supply chain to collaborate on the design, use, and reuse of plastics in order to create a path forward to a circular economy for plastics by 2025.
“We aspire to be at the forefront of the transition to a circular, reuse economy and finding new ways of giving consumers the products they need,” said Kim Underhill, president of Kimberly-Clark’s North American consumer business.
“We realise getting there will take game-changing innovation, and we know we’re up to the challenge to do more by joining the U.S. Plastics Pact.”
As part of the U.S. Plastics Pact, Kimberly-Clark and its brands join more than 70 brands, retailers, NGOs, and government agencies across the plastics value chain working to bring one voice to U.S. packaging through coordinated initiatives and innovative solutions for rethinking products, packaging, and business models
In addition to joining the U.S. Plastics Pact, Kimberly-Clark recently announced its new 2030 sustainability strategy and goals, aimed at addressing the social and environmental challenges of the next decade with commitments to improve the lives and wellbeing of one billion people in underserved communities around the world with the smallest environmental footprint.
