Kimberly-Clark Professional™ announced today that its recently launched Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Glove has earned the Accountability, Consistency, and Transparency (ACT) Environmental Impact Factor Label from My Green Lab®, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to building a global culture of sustainability in science. The ACT Label is the world’s premier ecolabel for laboratory products. The program ensures accountability, consistency, and transparency in the reporting of environmental impact data to enable sustainable laboratory procurement.

Since 2017, more than 1,100 lab products have received an ACT Label from My Green Lab. Not only is the Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Glove the first laboratory glove and personal protective equipment (PPE) product to earn an ACT Label, but Kimberly-Clark Professional™ is also the first PPE supplier to have earned an ACT Label.

“At Kimberly-Clark Professional, we are focused on bringing our customers value-added innovation in an environmentally friendly fashion,” said Anuj Sinha, General Manager, Global Scientific. "To bring more transparency to the market, we chose to go through the ACT certification process with our Polaris Nitrile Glove to give customers visibility into our supply chain integrity."

The criteria for receiving an ACT Label, also known as the Environmental Impact Factor (EIF) criteria, entails third-party verification of the environmental impact of a product, its operations, and its end of life. Completing this process and achieving certification for a product offers a baseline and framework for continuous improvement for product manufacturers, while also enabling customers to make more informed decisions on the products they purchase for their labs.

In many work environments, it is critical for workers to utilize single-use PPE products, such as nitrile gloves, to protect themselves and their processes. Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves’ high-quality nitrile formulation offers not only uncompromised protection, strength, and comfort, but also keeps customers’ sustainability goals at the forefront.
