84% of businesses already have sustainability goals in place (1).

Every day we weigh the impact of our decisions in an ever-changing world.

Wightman & Parrish are passionate about our sustainability journey through social, ethical, and moral responsibilities. One of the ways we do this is to offer sustainable alternatives to our customers, and also by reducing our environmental footprint. Wightman & Parrish can do this by using key suppliers, such as Kimberly-Clark Professional™.

Energy

Kimberly-Clark Professional™ are reducing use across all operations, investing in renewable sources like solar and wind, and utilising higher efficiency cogeneration units.

Technologies

KC’s innovative Airflex™ technology creates a more open and absorbent wiper and hand towel, resulting in up to 17% less fiber required to achieve the same performance, that means less product needed.
