Primary Climate Goal
Kimberly-Clark Corp's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2030 should be equal to 2,450 Kt = 50% * 4,900 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Kimberly-Clark Corp would need to reduce its emissions at least by -135 Kt per annum over the period from 2021 to 2030:
-135 Kt = ( 2,450 Kt - 3,800 Kt ) / (2030 - 2020)
This translates into a -3.6% reduction in 2021.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
Kimberly-Clark Corp reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 3,800 Kt (-300 /-7.3% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity plummeted to 199 t (-24 /-10.7% y-o-y).
Kimberly-Clark Corp's Scope 3 emissions declined marginally to 13,002 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 50% by 2030 from a base year 2015, which translates into the estimated reduction of -135 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to <2°C above pre-industrial levels.
