Kimberly-Clark is committed to supporting the well-being and development of the communities in which we operate and live.
We contribute to communities through programs and partnerships developed by our Kimberly-Clark Foundation and a wide range of health, education and economic initiatives undertaken by our operations at the regional and international levels. Our goal is to contribute to every Kimberly-Clark community through socially focused programs by 2015.
In the sections that follow, we describe our Foundation work in more detail and provide a snapshot of our 2011 social and economic community initiatives. We also describe our response to the many global communities that needed support following devastating natural disasters, which included much-needed funds, supplies and hands-on assistance.
While we had zero fatalities in both 2010 and 2011, unfortunately
there was a recent death at a Kimberly-Clark de Mexico facility in 2012.
We are active in 62 percent of communities in which we have facilities.
We have communicated to all key suppliers, and are rolling out the standards to our remaining suppliers in a phased approach.
