More Henkel Corporate Reporting 2014
The indicators we record throughout the company offer transparency. We show the progress of each of our indicators over a five-year period. In this Sustainability Report, we focus on the publication of our globally relevant core indicators. We provide information on other environmental parameters on the internet.
The production-related data for 2014 were determined at 163 of 169 Henkel sites in 54 countries. The data represent more than 99 percent of our production volume in 2014. They are validated centrally for year-end reporting and verified locally within the framework of our internal audit program. Any differences discovered or reported at a later date are corrected retroactively in our reporting system. Since our production structures are constantly changing – due to the start-up of new sites or closure of existing sites, for example – the number of sites contributing data changes accordingly: from 193 in 2009 to 163 in 2014. To ensure the comparability of the annual data, we also show their progress as an index relative to the volume of production.
Occupational accidents are registered using a globally uniform reporting system. 99 percent of Henkel employees are covered. The published employee indicators also cover 96 percent of our employees.
We have been working to increase the efficiency and safety of our production processes for decades. Our sustainability performance over the past 11 years illustrates this very clearly. In all three business units, our optimization efforts focus on improving value creation and occupational health and safety in our production operations while reducing our environmental footprint. Building on the progress achieved, we aim to reduce our energy and water use, our waste footprint, and the accident rate still further (see here).
