More Henkel Corporate Reporting 2014
Policymakers and government authorities often seek out the expertise of companies in their political decision-making processes. Within this context, it is possible for us to describe how political considerations impact Henkel, our employees and business partners and for us to provide pertinent experience-based knowledge. Our worldwide “Representation of Interests in Public Affairs” standard provides clear guidance on conduct for this. We also openly provide information about our fields of interest and the scope of our work involving governmental or political affairs through our entry in the Transparency Register of the European Union.
The same applies when we collaborate with associations. Henkel participated, for example, in the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), the Sustainability Consortium, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products (A.I.S.E.) in 2014 to further develop a common methodology for measuring the contribution that products make to sustainability along the value chain.
Henkel plays an active role in the European Commission’s Single Market for Green Products initiative, which aims to establish standardized and transparent methods of calculating the environmental footprint of both organizations and products. Henkel has supported the A.I.S.E.’s application to the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) pilot phase for household liquid laundry detergents that was accepted by the European Commission in 2013. Through the end of 2016, Henkel will carry on participating in the pilot project with the objective of developing accurate and meaningful environmental declarations for our product categories.
