Sustainability

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.

Our Sustainability Strategy

"Factor 3": Tripling the value we create through our business activities in relation to our environmental footprint – that is our goal for 2030.

Corporate Citizenship

Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company.

Henkel’s commitment to leadership in sustainability is deeply embedded in our values. Maintaining a balance between economic success, protection of the environment, and social responsibility has been fundamental to our corporate culture for decades. This approach applies to every business unit and function, and our 47,000 employees all over the world have firmly embraced the principles of sustainable development in their daily work and think and act accordingly.

Our sustainability strategy: achieving more with less

To maintain this lead in the future, we have developed a long-term sustainability strategy and set a straightforward yet ambitious goal for the year 2030: By this year, all Henkel products and processes should be three times as efficient as they are today (“Factor 3”).

This aim addresses one of the central challenges we will face in the future: decoupling growth from resource consumption. Instead, we want to create more value – for our customers and consumers, for the communities we operate in, and for our company – while reducing our environmental footprint at the same time. Achieving more with less – this is the idea at the heart of our sustainability strategy which guides all of our business processes and activities.
