Kimberly-Clark has released its 2006 Sustainability Report, which outlines the companys achievements and future plans for improving its environmental and social responsibility.

Highlights of the report detail the companys successful reduction of its energy use by 2% and increased efficiency by roughly 3%, decreased green house gas emissions at its manufacturing operations by 2%, and increased use of certified fibre in its products for the fourth year in a row, and the update of its fibre procurement policy.

The environmental and social challenges society will face in the coming decades from climate change and tighter regulations to growth in developing markets, are real issues that will require changes in behaviour, new ways of operating and broader cooperation among individuals, companies and governments, said Thomas J. Falk, chairman and CEO.
