Kimberly-Clark Joins Forest Conservation Program

June 15, 2021

Kimberly-Clark Corp., parent company of Kimberly-Clark Professional, has joined the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) new Forests Forward program.

The WWF’s initiative is designed to educate participating companies on how to mitigate climate, sourcing, and social risks while reaching their sustainability and business goals. Kimberly-Clark will work with the WWF to develop strategies that provide long-term benefit for its business while promoting conservation. Kimberly-Clark previously had committed to reducing its natural forest footprint by 50% by 2025.

“Forests are more than the trees they contain, and not all forests are created equal in terms of the carbon and biodiversity benefits they provide,” said David Chaffin, Ph.D., Kimberly-Clark global responsible materials sourcing lead. “As the world faces the twin climate and biodiversity crises, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with WWF and like-minded companies ready to take leadership action on climate, biodiversity, and Indigenous rights through their forest-sourcing practices.”
