March 10, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Henkel published its Sustainability Report for 2013 on February 20, 2014. The report details the important environmental and social progress made by the company over the last year. Two years ago, Henkel presented its Sustainability Strategy, outlining the company’s long-term goal of achieving more with less, and increasing resource efficiency by a factor of 3 by 2030. In pursuit of this ambitious goal, Henkel continued to focus on creating solutions for sustainable development last year. These include innovative products, joint projects with partners from the community, industry, and the political world, and numerous sustainability initiatives involving around 47,000 employees worldwide. “The examples featured in the Sustainability Report show that we are on course to meet our targets,” noted Kathrin Menges, Executive Vice President Human Resources and Chair of Henkel’s Sustainability Council. “Our employees’ understanding and commitment to sustainability are the key factor in our success. Which is why we have thoroughly integrated issues of sustainability into our in-house training programs and will continue to do so.”

These programs include workplace safety as well as special advanced training programs for management trainees in emerging markets. The “Sustainability Ambassadors” program was one of the most important training initiatives in 2013. The program gives Henkel employees skills to competently convey the importance of sustainability to their co-workers, suppliers, customers, and consumers, and to school children as well. Since the start of the program in 2012, Henkel has trained around 1,500 sustainability ambassadors, who have brought learning in sustainability to more than 15,000 school children in 25 countries.

Henkel’s leading role in sustainability was confirmed once again in 2013 in international rankings. Henkel was ranked “Sector Leader” in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the seventh consecutive year. It was also included in the FTSE4Good ethical index for the 13th year in a row, and ranked among the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” for the sixth time running.
