NBA’s Atlanta Hawks And State Farm Arena Announce New Sustainability-Focused Partnership With Kimberly-Clark Professional

As Earth Month comes to a close, the Atlanta Hawks, State Farm Arena and Kimberly-Clark Professional™ have announced a new multi-year, sustainability-focused partnership.

“Throughout the award-winning downtown Atlanta venue, Kimberly-Clark Professional branding and products, including Scott® paper towels and Kleenex® tissue, soap dispensers and hand sanitizers, will be featured at select Hawks’ home games,” according to a press release. “Kimberly-Clark Professional branding will also appear on the uniform shirts worn by the Hawks’ Mop Crew, who are responsible for cleaning the hardwood floor during timeouts and halftime.

“Kimberly-Clark recently earned the No. 2 spot on Barron’s list of most sustainable U.S. companies for its achievements in reducing its environmental footprint and announced its ambition to be 100 percent Natural Forest Free in all its products.”

“We are excited to continue our sustainability efforts by partnering with Kimberly-Clark Professional,” Hawks’ EVP and State Farm Arena General Manager Brett Stefansson said. “Our two organizations have continued to focus on quality and innovation in the realm of workplace hygiene and safety, and we truly believe that this new relationship will help us prioritize the well-being of our Atlanta community.”

“In April 2022, Green Business Certification Inc., the world’s leading sustainability and health certification and credentialing body, announced that State Farm Arena earned a TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Platinum certification,” the release added. “With this achievement, State Farm Arena is now the world’s first and only sports and live entertainment venue to receive TRUE certification and has been recertified to maintain this standard of excellence. Since May 2021, the venue has consistently diverted a minimum of 90 percent of all waste from landfills.”

“At Kimberly-Clark Professional, our purpose is to provide Better Care for a Better World,” Kimberly-Clark Professional North America President Susan Gambardella said. “We look forward to helping this important customer meet their sustainability goals with environmentally responsible products and programs.”
