- HOW DO WE HELP ESTABLISH A PROFOUND DIGITAL CULTURE?
- HOW DO WE DRIVE TRANSFORMATION IN A LARGER DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM?
- HOW DO WE BRING OUR PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGIES TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
We think it’s important to build change culture by making digital knowledge approachable for all our teams. Our worldwide Digital Upskilling initiative offers tailor-made trainings for all about 53,000 Henkel employees, clustered by different job groups. Transformation won’t happen overnight – it’s a process that takes time. For us, intuitive and personalized training formats create engagement and thus ensure constant digital learning. Through Digital Upskilling, Henkel sets its standard of digital knowledge throughout the company. We cannot transform unless we integrate every manager, every team member and every intern who works with us.
Today’s world is highly connected and calls for collaboration like never before. Henkel X Ventures is our open innovation platform that merges us into a vast digital network including startups, other companies, business angels or scientific institutions. Here, we celebrate our entrepreneurial spirit by experiencing new technologies, experiment with new business models, and establish our own digital ecosystem. We love to exchange ideas and are proud to be a key driver of digitalization in all our industries.
We drive digital transformation from the inside as well as from the outside. Not less important for us: the development of our core asset, the Henkel products and technologies. An ever-connected world changes consumers’ needs as well as their purchase decisions. We go from providing a single product to offering well-integrated services, easy to use via digital devices.

The transaction is another milestone in the company’s ambition to actively shape its portfolio, an important pillar of its Purposeful Growth agenda.

Henkel on food contact packaging: Sustainability and food safety are two sides of the same coin
The importance of food safety in packaging remains paramount for consumers. At the same time, the sustainability of packaging is becoming ever more relevant as a factor in the purchasing decision. Legislators are increasingly acting on these demands, introducing relevant regulation. A few examples: starting January 2022, France is likely to ban the usage of mineral oils in packaging all together, in its ‘Loi relative à la lute contre le gaspillage et pour une économie circulaire’ (AGEC). Meanwhile, Germany is working on new stricter threshold guideline for mineral oil when it comes to the reuse of recycling paper for food contact applications.
