Henkel listed in Newsweek Green Ranking
Produced in collaboration with two leading environmental research organizations, Trucost and Sustainalytics, Newsweek’s Green Rankings comprehensively assess the environmental performance of the largest publicly traded companies in America and around the world. Published annually since 2009, this project is the first effort by a major media organization to rank companies based on their actual environmental footprint, management of that footprint, and sustainability communications. The rankings provide a cross-industry framework for comparing the environmental commitment and performance of major companies.
"Our commitment to leadership in sustainability is deeply embedded in our value system,” said Henkel CEO Kasper Rorsted. “We also define leadership on the basis of how our stakeholders perceive us in our efforts and so it is important to receive feedback if we are living up to this commitment. We are therefore delighted that our sustainability performance has once again been confirmed.”
