Our commitment to leadership in sustainability is anchored in our corporate values. We want to create more value – for our customers and consumers, for the communities we operate in, and for our company – while, at the same time, reducing our environmental footprint.

Sustainability Strategy 2030: Achieving more with less

  • Our long-term goal is to triple the value we create through our business operations in relation to the environmental footprint of our products and services by 2030. We refer to this goal as “Factor 3”.
  • In 2016 Henkel developed three key drivers for the coming years: We aim to strengthen our foundation, boost employee engagement and maximize our impact.

Interim targets 2016-2020

  • By 2020, the company intends to reduce CO2 emissions of its production sites, water use and waste volume by 30% per ton of product compared to 2010. Occupational safety is to be improved by 40% and sales by 22% per ton of product.
  • The achievement of these targets would result in an overall efficiency improvement of 75% by 2020 compared to 2010.

Sustainability targets until 2020 and progress made in 2016

Six focal areas

We are concentrating our activities on six focal areas that reflect the key challenges of sustainable development as they relate to our operations.

Three of them describe how we want to create “more value” for our customers and consumers, our employees, our shareholders and for the communities we operate in:

  • Social progress
  • Performance
  • Safety and health

The three other areas describe the ways in which we want to reduce our environmental footprint:

  • Energy and climate
  • Materials and waste
  • Water and wastewater
