Sustainability

As sustainability leaders, we aim to pioneer new solutions for sustainable development while continuing to shape our business responsibly and increase our economic success. This ambition encompasses all of our company’s activities – along the entire value chain.

Strategy

Our sustainability strategy

Tripling the value we create through our business activities in relation to our environmental footprint – that is our goal for 2030.

Corporate Citizenship

Corporate Citizenship

Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company.

For more than 140 years, Henkel has been taking a visionary approach to supporting environmental and social progress. We recognize the potential impact we can have by developing sustainable innovations – because our products and technologies are used millions of times around the world every day. We’ve integrated environmental and social criteria into our innovation process so that every new product or formulation we launch contributes to sustainability.

Alongside this focus on innovation, we’ve set ourselves ambitious targets as part of a comprehensive sustainability strategy. This provides a shared understanding of our direction of travel by building sustainability into the day-to-day work of our employees around the world. And it drives progress toward improved sustainability and business performance – because we believe these two aspects go hand-in-hand. Together with our partners, we’re advancing sustainability along the entire value chain.

Henkel in the UK and Ireland

Henkel in the UK and Ireland is, like the global company, committed to leadership in sustainability. Every day, we focus on sustainability to maintain a balance between economic success, protection of the environment and social responsibility, throughout the whole business.

The global sustainability strategy is implemented in all our company activities along the entire value chain, from production to customer partnerships, to supporting local charities and employee engagement.

Our products and technologies are continuously being challenged and developed to further support our sustainable development and reduce the impact on the environment. For example, the technology for Henkel’s Loctite GC10 solder paste, means no refrigeration is needed and it has a much longer shelf life. Therefore, it eliminates the need for cold shipping, refrigerated storage and less product is wasted. This innovative technology was the result of several years of research from our Product Development team in the UK and is proving a firm favourite with customers, bringing significant cost savings and reductions in energy consumption.
