Kimberly-Clark, the manufacturer of personal care and hygiene products with well-known brands such as Kleenex, Cottonelle and Scott, reached 8.5 million people in underserved communities through brand-led initiatives.
During 2020, social and community investments from the Kimberly-Clark Foundation helped increase access to sanitation worldwide.
Guided by purpose, the foundation carries out the company’s social responsibility initiatives, with a primary focus on social and community investments that increase access to sanitation facilities, help children thrive, and empower women and girls.
The corporation and its employees respond to causes and programs with financial contributions, product donations and volunteer time.
“While we recognize we have a long way to go to achieve our 2030 goal of uplifting 1 billion people, we are laying the groundwork for accelerated impact in the years to come,” the company commented in a note on LinkedIn.
