Excellent sustainability performance

For the eighth consecutive year, Henkel has been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World) and Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe (DJSI Europe). The inclusion in both indices confirms Henkel’s excellent performance amongst the leading companies in the Household Products category.

The ranking is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, tracking issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, resource efficiency, supply chain standards and labor practices. Only 10 percent of the world’s 2,500 largest corporations are selected for the DJSI World, while only 20 percent of the 600 largest European corporations are included in the DJSI Europe.
