Our purpose at Kimberly-Clark is to provide Better Care for a Better World through the products we make,
the workplaces we create and the communities we serve.
Our vision for reconciliation in Australia is a system that ensures equal access to better health, hygiene, and well-being outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
More broadly, Australia’s reconciliation acknowledges our shared history and the contribution of First Nations peoples and their cultures to society, past, present, and future. It sees the adjustment of corporate and societal systems that increase opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Through this change, the nation can achieve equal levels of health, financial and life fulfillment that is deserved of by the whole population. We want to see a nation that is proud of its shared history, and united in its future.
In 2021, we started our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) journey, with the theme of our first plan ‘Reflect’ which outlined our commitment to progressing reconciliation in Australia. At the end of 2022, we have followed up with our second plan, themed ‘Innovate’.
