Sustainability


INTRODUCTION

Keeping our planet and people healthy

We are committed to caring for our planet and ensuring everyone remains happy and healthy. Whether it’s increasing the amount of recyclable packaging, using sustainably sourced fibres in all our products or promising to reduce water, carbon and waste in our manufacturing, we will continue to do our bit. In turn, we’re making it easier for you to do yours.

Kleenex® #Everystepcounts


PRODUCT AND PACKAGING

100% Recyclable

All Kleenex® tissue boxes are made from recycled carton and are fully recyclable

Less plastic

Kleenex® is removing the plastic opening from all its boxes. That’s 82 tons of plastic per year, the equivalent weight of 8 million 500 ml plastic bottles * **based on total Kleenex® boxes sold in the UK in 2019 

100% Sustainably sourced fibres

100% of the fibre used in Kleenex® tissues comes from sustainably sourced fibres which supports a positive change for forests and people around the world.

MANUFACTURING

Zero Waste

Since 2013, we have sent zero manufacturing waste to landfill from our Kleenex® factories, and will continue to do so

Lower Emissions

Our Kleenex® factories have reduced carbon emissions by 31.5% since 2005 and we are committed to reducing this further

Less Water

We have reduced water use in our production by 23.8% versus 2005. That’s the enough to fill 425 Olympic size swimming pools!
