Social engagement is part of our sense of responsibility and firmly embedded in our corporate values.
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 and the Fritz Henkel Stiftung are able to support sustainable social projects around the world. They both support 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 four core elements:
Corporate Volunteering: Voluntary social engagement of our employees and retirees
Social Partnerships: Henkel as a company promoting social projects around the world
Brand Engagement: Henkel brands supporting social projects worldwide
Emergency Aid: Immediate aid to people placed in urgent need by natural catastrophe
In January 2011, Henkel established the Fritz Henkel Stiftung. This foundation serves as the umbrella for our social engagement. It has close ties to the company and underscores Henkel’s long term commitment to social involvement that goes beyond its direct business interests.
With the goal to give young people with less means the opportunity to get the best possible education the Dr. Jost Henkel Stiftung continues to support gifted and motivated young talent since 1958.
7,937 thousand euros for donations worldwide.
We support 51 days time off from work for employee-initiated projects.
More than 1,147,483 people supported.
In total, we have supported more than 2,422 projects.
How to encourage children to take up science? Start them young! “There is so much in this world to discover. That’s why curiosity, having the courage to ask questions and having fun in finding out are what lie at the roots of our “Forscherwelt” initiative – igniting children’s interest in the sciences.”
(Dr. Simone Bagel-Trah, Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board and the Shareholders’ Committee of Henkel)
