Sustainability has been part of how we do business ever since Kimberly-Clark was founded almost 150 years ago. Today we remain deeply committed to reducing the impact of our products and packaging on the environment to ensure we’re looking after our world for generations to come.
Responsible forestry & ethical sourcing
We are committed to reducing our impact on forests through ethical sourcing. We’re proud that 100% of the fibre used in our facial tissues is FSC® certified. FSC is a third party certification that is internationally recognised as the global ‘gold standard’ in forest certification by leading environmental groups including Greenpeace and WWF®. FSC certification means that we source the fibre to make our tissue products from forests that are environmentally responsible, economically viable and socially beneficial. We are also part of the WWF® Global Forest and Trade Network (GFTN), which promotes responsible forest management and trade to reduce the impacts of the pulp and paper sector and conserve the world’s valuable and threatened forests. GFTN works with more than 300 companies across the globe that are committed to ensuring a legal, responsible and sustainable forestry supply chain. This means that when you buy Kleenex® products you can be confident you are supporting sustainable forest management.
