GWC member Kimberly-Clark has announced the release of their 2011 Sustainability Report. The report, titled “Full Circle”, focuses on Kimberly-Clark’s strategic framework of People, Planet and Products while highlighting goals set out for 2015, including a goal for 25% reduction in water use while maintaining water discharge quality. Kimberly-Clark has affirmed their commitment to water-replenishment projects around the world, with an anticipated return of 205 million gallons of water per year to surrounding communities. Highlights of water social initiatives include:
- Supporting watershed development in India, including phases of both water conservation projects as well as access to clean drinking water
- Securing the water supply in Israel by building a private well that provides non-drinkable water to a local Kimberly-Clark plant while freeing up more drinking water for the local population
- Reducing water use in Spain with a “Save a Flush” Scottex campaign that gave consumers a device that reduced 1 liter of water per flush when installed on a toilet
