(Y)OUR MOVE toward sustainability

Henkel employees worldwide strive to live sustainably

“You change a little. We change a lot”. The slogan of Henkel’s (Y)OUR MOVE sustainability campaign shows that small actions have a big impact when everyone gets involved. Together with its employees worldwide and European nations, Henkel participated in the first European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) from May 30 to June 5 by promoting sustainable behaviors among employees through its (Y)OUR MOVE toward Sustainability campaign.

Building on the success of its Sustainability Ambassador program, the (Y)OUR MOVE campaign encouraged sustainable behavior at work through simple actions like turning off lights, printing less and using reusable water bottles. ESDW is a European-wide initiative supported by the European Sustainable Development Network that aims to boost the visibility of projects and events that promote sustainable development.
