Vision 2008 concentrated on opportunity & sustainability
Apr '08
Topical and informative presentations on corporate sustainability from Wal-Mart and Kimberly-Clark enthralled a standing-room-only crowd during the VISION 2008 Consumer Products Conference, just one of many highlights of the three-day event held February 12-14 in Fort Worth, Tex.

The seventh annual Conference, organized by INDA, brought together more than 300 executives from both the consumer products and engineered fabrics industries from around the world.

Another of the many highlights of the three-day Conference was the presentation of the coveted 2008 Visionary Award to Kimberly-Clark for its new SpaSensials beauty care product. SpaSensials was selected over five other finalists from in voting by VISION 2008 attendees. (See news item below.)

In the most well attended session at VISION 2008, Kim Brandner, senior manager-sustainable textiles, for Wal-Mart Stores, and Ken Strassner, VP-Global, Environmental, Safety, Regulatory and Scientific Affairs at Kimberly-Clark, focused on Corporate Sustainability as a key business strategy in the 21st Century.

“Wal-Mart will only work with suppliers who maintain the sustainability standards we want in our relationships,” said Brandner. “Sustainability is more than just a responsibility, it is a business opportunity.”

Added Strassner, “Sustainability development issues will shape the future of business. Yet we have only begun to tap the surface of sustainability and it is a continual process that helps to better position Kimbery-Clark as a global health and hygiene company.””
