Sustainability at Henkel

Commitment to leadership in sustainability is one of our core corporate values. As sustainability leaders, we aim to pioneer new solutions for sustainable development while continuing to shape our business responsibly and increase our economic success. This ambition encompasses all of our company’s activities – along the entire value chain, and is the basis upon which we developed our sustainability strategy for 2030: We want to achieve more with less and triple our efficiency in the next 20 years. In view of the increasing demand on limited natural resources, we must continue to improve. In moving ahead, we will focus on involving our employees even more deeply in our sustainability activities, intensifying our collaboration with our partners along the value chain, and further improving our evaluation, steering and communication tools.
