Kimberly-Clark Wins Energy and Environmental Management AwardJuly 23, 2021
Kimberly-Clark Corp., parent company of Kimberly-Clark Professional, has received the Top Project of the Year Award in the Environment + Energy Leader Awards program for its energy project at Maverick Creek, a 50,000-acre wind farm in Eden, Texas.
The awards program recognizes excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, and in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.
Maverick Creek, owned and operated by Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp., powers the production of many Kimberly-Clark products including Kleenex®, Scott®, Cottonelle®, and Viva® with more than 670,000 megawatt hours of renewable energy annually. The wind farm also reduces Kimberly-Clark’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 300,000 MTCO2e, which is equivalent to emissions from more than 65,000 passenger vehicles driven for one year, the company said.
Maverick Creek broke ground in November of 2019 and began operations in December 2020.
