Around the world, consumers are looking for environmentally conscious and responsibly sourced products that are made according to standards that help reduce pollution, waste, and the use of natural resources. Many people look for certification labels that indicate which products meet these high standards.
In 2017, we were proud to become the first company to be certified under the Singapore Environment Council’s new, stricter green label program. To receive this certification, companies selling paper and tissue products must show that their suppliers are following responsible forestry practices, including in water use, fire management, and the protection of biodiversity on peat lands. The Singapore Environment Council certified 12 of our products.
“Countries across Asia are experiencing more haze from fire used in land clearing, which has raised awareness about issues like emissions and pollution,” said Anuj Lal, General Manager of Asia Pacific for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “This new green label helps consumers understand the value we at Kimberly-Clark place on environmental stewardship and the responsible management of forests, which help preserve clean air.”
Together with World Wildlife Fund, we are raising consumer awareness about the importance of choosing tissue and towel products made with FSC® Certified fiber from responsibly managed forests.Read the story
