GLOBAL COLLABORATION
DRIVES EFFICIENCY

BY EXCHANGING EXPERIENCES, WE'RE BRINGING PEOPLE CLOSER TOGETHER- AND CLOSER TO ACHIEVING OUR GOALS.

We know that achieving our sustainability goals demands us to be our very best.

It takes all of us working together to strengthen capabilities and collaboration across our global network. To do this our experienced team members across Kimberly-Clark travel to other countries to share experiences, transfer skills and solve problems.

We followed three team members who traveled from South Korea to various locations throughout the Asia-Pacific regions. They are applying skills and knowledge gained from years of experience with Yuhan-Kimberly, our joint venture in South Korea, to help other teams make progress toward their sustainability goals.

Beyond the immediate benefits of increasing the efficiency of our operations - which helps lower energy use and reduce waste - they are also building relationships, trust and ties between teams that have lasting benefits for the future.

Moon Sung
Operations Excellence Manager

Moon Sung previously worked to implement LEAN manufacturing in Korea and Taiwan, making him a perfect candidate to apply this knowledge elsewhere. This year, he wrapped up a six-year assignment traveling between Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, where he worked with our teams to bring LEAN management systems on-line at mills throughout the region.

WASTEWATER
NOT WASTED WATER
