Kimberly-Clark provides essentials for a better life to one quarter of the world’s population every day. Yet millions still lack access to basic products and services that could dramatically improve their quality of life.

Globally we’re working to address this with a goal to improve the lives of 1 billion people in underserved communities by 2030. And locally we’re also stepping up our support for some of our region’s most vulnerable people through our social impact programs.

As part of our 2030 Ambitions, we have identified three key focus areas:

• Female empowerment – fighting the stigmas that hold girls and women back, and helping to alleviate period poverty so that every girl and woman can manage her period safely, and with dignity.

• Family health and wellbeing – supporting health and wellbeing outcomes for new parents and babies, as well as addressing nappy stress through product donation programs.

• Social connection – supporting the mental health of all Australians and New Zealanders including new parents, the elderly, teenagers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and Maori communities.

Through these programs, we aim to support 6.5 million people across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific by 2030.
