The EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership has recognized Kimberly-Clark with one of only 17 Climate Leadership Awards given nationwide for reducing greenhouse emissions, according to a release. The award acknowledges the voluntary work organizations do to manage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the supply chain. 

Kimberly-Clark received the Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management "Goal Achievement Award" for reporting and verifying organization-wide greenhouse gas inventories and achieving publicly-set aggressive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals, the release says.

"We're proud of the progress we've made in finding ways to grow sustainably," says Sandra MacQuillan, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer for Kimberly-Clark. "We are increasing efforts to educate, excite and engage employees around sustainability by demonstrating how it connects with our vision and values as a company."
