Henkel named one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” in 2015
Henkel was named one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” again this year by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent organization that defines and advances the standards of ethical business practices. The award recognizes companies that have had a material impact on the way business is conducted by fostering a culture of ethics and transparency at every level of the organization.
This prize recognizes Henkel’s continued efforts to implement its sustainability strategy of “achieving more with less.” By 2030, the company aims to triple the value it creates for the footprint made by its operations, products and services. Henkel published its 2014 Sustainability Report on March 4 and announced that it reached its first interim sustainability targets for 2015, one year ahead of schedule.
Henkel aims to improve its performance again in 2015 and is working on defining new interim targets for 2020. The company is committed to leadership in sustainability and sees it not only as a responsibility but also an opportunity to continuously improve and strengthen its competitiveness.
Henkel’s assessment and recognition by sustainability experts increases market transparency and provides important feedback on how well the company is implementing its sustainability strategy.
