K-C among ‘100 Best Corporate Citizens’

April 30, 2014

Kimberly-Clark Corp. ranks among the "100 Best Corporate Citizens" for the sixth straight year, appearing at No. 13 in the current issue of Corporate Responsibility Magazine. Kimberly-Clark is one of only four firms to rank in the top 20 for six consecutive years, joining Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., Intel Corp. and IBM Corp. among the top companies since 2009.

Improving from No. 18 last year, Kimberly-Clark is a leader among all other consumer packaged-goods companies in the 15th annual "100 Best" survey.

"Through an enterprise-wide approach to its people, planet and products sustainability pillars, Kimberly-Clark has earned a solid reputation as a good corporate citizen," says Lisa Morden, senior director of sustainability for Kimberly-Clark. "We credit that track record to the thousands of K-C employees around the world who understand that a corporate commitment to stewardship is only as strong as the individual decisions our people make on the job every day."

To determine the "100 Best" rankings, CR Magazine assesses 298 factors for each company on the Russell 1000 index. Data are gathered from publicly available resources for seven key criteria: climate change, environment, employee relations, finance, governance, human rights and philanthropy.

The first "100 Best Corporate Citizens" listing appeared in Business Ethics Magazine in 1999, and has been published in CR Magazine (formerly CRO Magazine) since 2007 based on an open and transparent methodology governed by the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association. CR Magazine is published by SharedXpertise Media.
