More Henkel Corporate Reporting 2014
With a clear strategy and engaged employees, we aim to develop our business responsibly for long-term success. Our achievements show that we are on the right track.
Commitment to leadership in sustainability is one of our core corporate values. Through our sustainability strategy, we contribute both to sustainable development and to our company’s economic success. As sustainability leaders, we aim to pioneer new solutions while continuing to shape our business responsibly and increase our economic success. This ambition encompasses all of our company’s activities – along the entire value chain.
We are convinced that sustainability will become increasingly important for our business success in the future. By the year 2050, the world’s population is expected to grow to 9 billion. The accompanying acceleration in global economic activity will lead to rising consumption and resource depletion. The effect of increasing pressure on available resources is becoming more noticeable around the world.
Our strategy is based on the Vision 2050 of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD): “In 2050, 9 billion people live well and within the resource limits of the planet.” For us as a company, this means helping people to live well by generating value while using less resources and causing less emissions. This is the idea at the heart of our sustainability strategy: Achieving more with less. We want to create more value – for our customers and consumers, for the communities we operate in, and for our company – while reducing our environmental footprint at the same time.
