Corporate Responsibility Magazine (CR Magazine) has named Kimberly-Clark to its 20th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking, recognizing outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance amongst the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies.
For Kimberly-Clark, this marks the 11th year that the company has been included in the list.
