Supplier Diversity Program

Diversity and Inclusion is aligned to Henkel’s Business Strategy 

Henkel’s purchasing professionals are instrumental in meeting the company’s objectives by supporting efforts to utilize diverse suppliers for the products and services we purchase. Henkel is active in the communities where we market our products. We encourage you to support the continued development of our supplier base. It makes good business sense and benefits both the business and the communities we serve.

Our Commitment 

The Supplier Diversity Program was established to provide the maximum opportunity for certified diverse suppliers including Disabled, LGBTQ+, Minority, Veteran and Women Owned Business Enterprises as well as disadvantaged and Hub Zone businesses who are interested in doing business with Henkel. Henkel’s Supplier Diversity Team is dedicated to providing assistance to both the buyer and the seller.

Components of Henkel’s Supplier Diversity Program:

Openness – actively seeking diverse suppliers through minority and business development organizations and participation in various trade show activities

Certification – verification of status through screening processes

Qualification – review and input of selected business criteria and referral to appropriate Purchasing professional for consideration

Utilization – activities in the purchasing processes, such as routine purchases, requests for proposals and contracts and other forms of purchases
