Henkel and Sustainability
For more than 130 years, Henkel has worked toward achieving sustainable development. Sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are part of our DNA. Through our brands and technologies, and as an employer, we work to meet the needs of people today without compromising the development opportunities of future generations. This principle applies to all our operations and throughout our entire value chain from raw materials, production and logistics to the use and disposal of our products.
We have grouped these sustainability challenges into five overarching focal areas: energy and climate, water and wastewater, materials and waste, health and safety, and social progress. With our business activities and our products, we want to contribute to each of these five focal areas. This is why we develop new, smarter products, in which top performance is combined with responsibility toward people and the environment. It is also the reason why, in line with our commitment, all new products contribute to sustainable development in at least one of these focal areas.
