Resource efficiency in the production
The human population is expected to increase to 9 billion by 2050 and the demand for consumer goods will increase as a result. This poses a challenge, as natural resources are finite: the planet has only so many metals, minerals, fuels, water, land, timber, fertile soil, and clean air. Companies must conduct business in more efficient and resource-sparing manner.
This idea is at the heart of Henkel’s sustainability strategy: achieving more with less. The company works consistently to reduce energy and water use and waste generation while upholding its promises of quality and safety at its 169 production sites worldwide. The 2014 Sustainability Report highlighted the contribution of a few Henkel production sites around the globe toward more resource-efficient production.
