Kimberly-Clark Professional Announces New Partnership with Mercedes-Benz Stadium Focused on Sustainability

The partnership will enhance the stadium experience for fans while increasing operational excellence in sustainability

ATLANTA, Ga., Feb. 20, 2024 – Atlanta-based Kimberly-Clark Professional announced today that it has become an official partner of Mercedes-Benz Stadium (MBS).  This partnership will offer enhanced sustainable solutions in all stadium restrooms from some of the most trusted brands in the industry.  Each stadium restroom will feature fully recyclable product solutions with Kimberly-Clark Professional’s The RightCycle™ Program, where single-use PPE and wet wipes are transformed into new consumer goods.


“We’re thrilled to partner with an iconic Atlanta sports and entertainment facility who mirrors our passion for being a leader in sustainability,” said Susan Gambardella, President, Kimberly-Clark Professional North America. “We pride ourselves on being a responsible supplier that can help our customers reduce their collective footprint while making workplaces healthier, safer and more productive.”

The partnership will include the installation of Kimberly Clark Professional’s ICON towel and toilet tissue dispenser systems leveraging ICON’s custom faceplate feature, the latest advancement in reliable and sustainable dispensing with a premium aesthetic. Kimberly-Clark Professional will also supply stadium staff with recyclable PPE gear (such as nitrile gloves and coveralls) that MBS can recycle through Kimberly-Clark Professional’s RightCycle™ Program.

With The RightCycle™ Program, eligible non-hazardous Kimberly-Clark Professional PPE products are collected at end-user facilities after use and instead of going to a landfill, they are sent to a recycling partner and turned into plastic pellets used to make durable consumer goods.


“Mercedes-Benz Stadium values partnerships with like-minded organizations to remain a world-class facility,” said Dietmar Exler, chief operating officer, AMB Sports and Entertainment. “Our partnership with Kimberly-Clark Professional reinforces our commitment to sustainability and aligns with our core values, further empowering our commitment to a more sustainable future.”

Mercedes-Benz Stadium continuously demonstrates a commitment to sustainability by reducing its environmental impact through innovative solutions and community partnerships. Notably, it was the first professional sports stadium in North America to be recognized with a Platinum certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™, setting a new standard for sustainable design and operations since its inception. In 2023, MBS was the first venue to be TRUE Platinum Certified for Zero Waste worldwide.


We're dedicated to the teamwork it takes to help create better customer experiences and doing so with partners who hold values similar to ours,” said Ignacio Suit, Chief Customer Officer, Kimberly-Clark Professional North America. “Many customers know our towel, tissue and hand hygiene brands, such as Kleenex and Scott, and these brands serve as a promise to guests of safety and cleanliness from a responsible and ethical source.”


Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Kimberly-Clark Professional are proud to further their sustainability efforts together and look forward to continuing to think of ways to create a better, more sustainable future.
