Kimberly-Clark Australia and New Zealand has released a new five-year local sustainability strategy designed to stretch local business further.
The new sustainability goals included in the strategy align with the company’s global strategy and focus on five key priority areas: social impact; forests and fibre; waste and recycling; energy and climate, and supply chain.
The five-year strategy launch coincides with the release of Kimberly-Clark’s 2015 Sustainability Report, which marks the final year of the company’s previous five year sustainability strategy called Our Essential World.
Kimberly-Clark achieved eight out of its nine sustainability goals in Our Essential World, including diverting waste from landfill and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“I’m extremely proud of our achievements in the latest progress report,” said Kimberly-Clark sustainability advisor Ryan Kane.
“Our strong results reflect our hard work and demonstrate our commitment to continue building new capabilities and stronger partnerships to solve problems, improve lives and add value through innovation.”
The company has said that the new five year sustainability strategy has evolved to focus on the businesses material environmental and social issues.
“Making sustainable choices isn’t always easy, particularly in challenging times,” shared Kimberly-Clark sustainability director Jacquie Fegent-McGeachie.
“But we know our business has a significant impact on the world, and we’re determined to make sure it’s a positive one.”
