Henkel volunteers support CSR-projects for renovation and building around the globe
Corporate Citizenship is a key element of Henkel´s sustainability strategy. To help people leading a better life, the company has set itself the goal to improve the lives of 30 million people worldwide*. This commitment among others is based on the volunteering engagement of its employees including dedicated housing and renovation projects. UN-Habitat estimates that by 2030 about 3 billion people will need access to adequate housing**. This corresponds to about 40 per cent of the world’s population and a demand for 96,000 new affordable and accessible housing units every day.
