Kimberly-Clark Asia Pacific CFO Rodney Olsen receiving the award from U.S. Ambassador to Singapore Kirk Wagar
Kimberly-Clark Asia Pacific has received the first ever AmCham CARES (Corporate and Societal Action: Recognition for Excellence in Singapore) award.
This award recognizes member organizations who demonstrate an excellent understanding of corporate citizenship relevance, by linking business operations and society in a way that will create long term economic and social value in the long run.
With a vision to lead the world in essentials for a better life, Kimberly-Clark has invested its efforts not just through its products, but also through its social programs across APAC. Committed to bring this vision to life, several programs have been implemented, such as Look After Your Forests in partnership with WWF Singapore to educate consumers on haze-free brands, Toilets Change Lives for providing sanitation in India, Touch of White Angels for improved healthcare in China, Love your Forests in partnership with WWF Australia to protect endangered forests, and Keep Korea Green that has planted over 50 million trees.
Recipients of the inaugural AmCham CARES award
The AmCham CARES award honored 30 companies across multiple business sectors and industries, for their programs related to socially responsible business practices and community engagement. The programs were assessed on four factors—communications, measurement, strategy and sustainability.
