March 5, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Henkel’s Sustainability Report details the environmental and social advancements made by the company in 2014. It highlights the active involvement of employees worldwide and the company’s progress toward its sustainability goal for 2030.

“Henkel’s clear Sustainability Strategy has proven highly effective, enabling us to reach four out of five interim targets one year ahead of schedule,” said Kathrin Menges, Executive Vice President Human Resources and Chair of Henkel’s Sustainability Council. “Our employees play a key role in achieving these successes and we will continue to rely on their commitment and expertise to drive further progress.”

The strategy has the long-term goal of achieving more with less and increasing resource efficiency by a factor of 3 by 2030. Henkel aims to improve the relationship between the value it creates and its environmental footprint by 30 percent for the five years from 2011 to 2015.

By the end of 2014, Henkel had achieved significant progress, with improvements of 20 percent in energy efficiency, 19 percent in water use, 18 percent in waste volume and 25 percent in occupational safety.

Henkel views leadership in sustainability not only as a responsibility, but also an opportunity to continuously strengthen its competitiveness. Three strategic principles are key to the implementation of the Sustainability Strategy: products, partners, and people. The company focuses on developing products that offer more value and better performance and have a smaller environmental footprint.

Henkel’s achievements in sustainability were recognized once again in 2014 with leading positions in various national and international sustainability ratings and indices. Henkel was listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices again. The company has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices since their launch in 1999, ranked eight times as industry leader. It was also included in the FTSE4Good Ethical Index for the 14th year in a row.
