Partnering with Kimberly-Clark has helped us maintain that commitment and achieve our sustainability goals.”

Similarly, Corey Meek, Corporate Responsibility Program Manager for Promega Corporation, commented, “Promega has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. The RightCycle program has made it easier for Promega to expand our current sustainable practices.”

Ashley Davis, Global Sustainability Manager for Kimberly-Clark Professional, praised the exceptional leadership in sustainability demonstrated by its customers through this program and other initiatives aimed at minimizing environmental impact. Davis extended congratulations to the honorees for their achievements and wished them continued success in their sustainability efforts.

Despite a pending transaction that could result in the discontinuation of the recycling program under The RightCycle Program brand, Kimberly-Clark Professional reaffirms its commitment to sustainability. The company aims to reduce its environmental footprint by 50% by 2030, focusing on key areas such as climate, forests, water and plastics.
