Elisabetta Marangoni, Media and Digital Director for Laundry & Home Care in Italy, listens to a student at the Istituto Comprensivo Teodoro school in Milan, Italy. Marangoni is one of Henkel’s 3,800 Sustainability Ambassadors worldwide.

More than 3,800 Henkel employees have become Sustainability Ambassadors since the program’s start in 2012.

If we want to achieve our goal of tripling the value that we create compared to the environmental footprint of our products and technologies by 2030, we need everyone to contribute. That is why we strive to give our employees a clear understanding of sustainability and enable them to convey the importance of sustainability to others.

Our Sustainability Ambassador program was launched in 2012 to engage employees more deeply on the topic of sustainability. Since then, Henkel has trained more than 3,800 Sustainability Ambassadors – including all Management Board members – in 70 countries.

Ambassadors are encouraged to visit elementary schools in order to explain the concept of sustainability by means of simple, everyday examples. Since the start of the program, the Sustainability Ambassadors have educated about 36,000 children in 37 countries.

In 2014, we expanded the program with our (Y)OUR MOVE toward Sustainability campaign. Rolled out in all regions, the campaign encourages employees to contribute to a sustainable society in their everyday lives through simple tasks such as turning off lights and printing less.
