“We’re proud of the progress we’ve made in finding ways to grow Kimberly-Clark sustainably,” said Sandra MacQuillan, Chief Supply Chain Officer. “As technology evolves and as we learn more about what we can do, it is possible that we could have a footprint that gives back, rather than takes – an aspiration we are all excited by.”
