As reflected in our corporate values, we are committed to leadership in sustainability. As leaders, we aim to pioneer new solutions for sustainable development while continuing to shape our business responsibly and increasing our economic success.

Our strategy

Our sustainability strategy is inspired by our purpose: Pioneers at heart for the good of generations.  With our pioneering spirit, our knowledge, our products and technologies, we want to enrich and improve the lives of billions of people every day – and shape a viable future for the next generations. 

Sustainability is thus a central element in our vision of the future. We want to actively drive the transformation to a sustainable economy and society, help protect and regenerate nature, contribute to strong communities and strengthen the trust of our stakeholders.

Our 2030+ Sustainability Ambition Framework sets our long-term ambitions in the three dimensions of Regenerative Planet, Thriving Communities and Trusted Partner and links to our high aspiration of achieving a “Transformational Impact for the Good of Generations”.


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.
