Kimberly-Clark announced that 3BL Media has named the company to its 2022 ranking of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens, which recognizes outstanding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies. This marks the 13th year that Kimberly-Clark was included in the ranking.
“This year, Kimberly-Clark celebrates 150 years of category-defining innovation, a strong culture of care and growing our business the right way,” said Mike Hsu, Chairman and CEO of Kimberly-Clark. “We’re proud to be included in the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list. This recognition reflects the dedication of our teams around the globe who are fulfilling our purpose of Better Care for a Better World by positively impacting billions of lives through the products we make, the workplaces we create and the communities we serve.”
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 155 ESG factors in eight pillars, including climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance.
“Achieving the transformational targets in the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in this decisive decade requires all companies to truly embed ESG issues into the core of their business,” said Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media. “The 100 Best Corporate Citizens of 2022 are answering the call by demonstrating the societal and bottom-line value of leadership and transparency around ESG topics. They are setting ambitious goals, outlining robust strategies for achieving them, disclosing data to measure progress, and accounting for all stakeholders in business decisions.”
