Note:
Our largest input material by far is fiber, and over 25% of the fiber that we use is recycled. The only other material that we purchase of which a significant percentage is recycled is packaging (mainly corrugate and paperboard cartons).

FSC 32.9%
Recycled content 29.5%
Total FSC/recycled content 62.4%
Total FSC/recycled content target 50%

Note:
As part of our 2011 global GFTN agreement with WWF, we will report our total use of environmentally preferred fiber for all fiber-containing products. Virgin pulp will include all K-C manufactured pulp, purchased market pulp and third-party contract manufactured fiber-containing products. K-C began collecting fiber data from third-party contract manufacturers in 2009.

Reduction in water use and maintain quality of discharge
2011
Progress
0.9%

Using a 2010 baseline, we have reduced our absolute water consumption by nearly 1 percent while maintaining water quality.

100%
Fiber from certified suppliers
2011
Progress
99.9%

Nearly 100 percent of our fiber is sourced from third-party-certified suppliers such as the Forest Stewardship Council.

5%
Absolute reduction in GHG
2011
Progress
1.2%

We reduced our absolute global greenhouse gas emissions by over 1 percent, based on a 2010 baseline, primarily driven by lower production levels at our mills.

manufacturing waste to landfill
2011
Progress
21.4%

Under 22 percent of our waste is currently sent to landfills, and our global nonwovens facilities have been virtually landfill-free for a decade.
