Energy and Climate Goals for Kimberly-Clark Sustainability 2022 (S2022)

Juan Marin
Senior Energy Engineer
Kimberly-Clark Corporation




In the fifth generation of Kimberly-Clark’s sustainability strategy, called Sustainability 2022 (S2022), the Energy and Climate goal is to reduce the absolute greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 20% versus the baseline year of 2005, through three main focus areas:
  • 1. Improving unit costs through increased energy efficiency - We will deploy demand-side energy management initiatives to reduce energy to save energy costs and, by reducing the amount of fuel used, reduce our GHG emissions.
  • 2. Reducing fuel costs for electricity and heating/cooling by switching to alternative sources of energy - We will shift to lower GHG-emitting and cost-advantaged fuels where possible to arrive at an energy mix optimized for sustainability and cost. This shift to alternative energy will be delivered through cogeneration solutions, thermal energy provided through biomass fuels (such as wood), and through renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind.
  • 3. Actively managing energy supply and reducing energy price volatility - We will use active supply-side energy management to optimize supply contracts and leverage economies of scale to purchase fuels where possible. These strategies will reduce energy price, avoid higher costs, and provide reliable, predictable power for our facilities, while reducing the total cost of power purchased.
