Henkel awarded again for leadership in sustainability
For the eighth consecutive year, Henkel receives RobecoSAM’s Gold Class award and is included again in the 2015 Global Most Sustainable Corporations in the World Index (Global 100 Index). The accolades recognize and confirm Henkel’s continued leadership and consistent commitment to sustainability.
Henkel received the Gold Class award for its sustainability achievements in the Sustainability Yearbook 2015, which lists the world’s most sustainable companies in each industry as determined by RobecoSAM’s annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).
Over 3,000 of the world’s largest companies are invited to participate in RobecoSAM’s CSA every year. The Sustainability Yearbook has been published by the sustainability investment specialist since 2004.
Henkel also joins again the Global 100 Index of Corporate Knights, the Toronto-based media and investment advisory company. Companies named to the Global 100 index are the top overall sustainability performers in their respective industrial sectors, selected from 4,609 listed companies with a market capitalization greater than $2 billion.
These awards recognize Henkel’s continued efforts to achieve more with less, the concept at the center of Henkel’s sustainability strategy. By 2030, Henkel aims to triple the value it creates for the footprint made by its operations, products and services.
