Kimberly-Clark Corp., parent company of Kimberly-Clark Professional, received the Net-Zero Award at the United Kingdom Paper Industry Gold Awards earlier this month.

The inaugural awards program was organized by the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) in partnership with the Paper Gold Medal Association to recognize the achievements of organizations and individuals in the United Kingdom’s paper industry. Kimberly-Clark was honored for its net-zero strategy to reduce carbon emissions in the company’s operations in the United Kingdom and internationally.
