Social Engagement – Corporate Citizenship


Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company. This is a tradition that dates back to our founder, Fritz Henkel, and is firmly embedded in our corporate values.Together with our employees, retirees, customers and consumers, Henkel is able to support sustainable social projects around the world.

Our donations in the last year totaled 7.9 million euros. In more than 2,400 social projects we supported more than 1,000,000 people. Henkel supports activities in the areas of social needs, education and science, fitness and health, arts and culture, and the environment.

We have structured our activities around three core elements:

MIT Initiative Corporate and Brand Engagement Emergency Aid

Voluntary social engagement of our employees and retirees

Henkel promotes social projects around the world

Immediate aid to people placed in urgent need by natural catastrophe
