New Sustainability Strategy



Achieving more with less

Henkel aims to create more added-value products with fewer resources through its new sustainability strategy.

Right now, seven billion people live on our planet. By the year 2050, that figure is expected to grow to about nine billion. Making sure future generations can live well within the resource limits of our planet will take a major shift in thinking. Therefore, companies must find ways of growing and improving quality of life without using up more resources and causing more emissions. We need products that allow people to live a good life yet use less and less materials. This idea is at the heart of Henkel’s 2030 Sustainability Strategy: Achieving more with less. It aims to create more value for our customers, consumers, communities and the company alike, while simultaneously reducing the environmental footprint. Innovative and smart thinking will be essential in following this strategy.
