Becoming Climate-positive

Emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are responsible for climate change and global warming. Limiting these emissions is one of the biggest challenges humankind has ever faced.

Helping customers and consumers reduce CO2 emissions

Walmart's Project Gigaton, is an initiative to reduce emissions by one billion metric tons (gigaton) from the global value chain by 2030. Henkel has committed to sourcing all electricity from renewable sources by 2030 and for production sites of consumer business to contribute zero waste to landfill by 2030.

The Henkel Bonderite Tectalis and Two-Step Process enable our customers to design multi-metal car bodies that combine steel and aluminum. As a result, these Henkel Adhesive Technologies solutions enable carmakers to use less steel and more aluminum. Lighter car bodies help to increase the fuel efficiency and with this reduce the CO2 emissions of a car.

Big difference

Becoming climate-positive might seem like just a neat little phrase, but it’s an approach with the potential to contribute to limiting climate change to well below two degrees by 2050. In pursuing this commitment, Henkel is aiming to make a big difference to environmental sustainability. We’re bringing this commitment to life by embracing the challenge set out by the Paris Agreement on climate change as an opportunity to get creative – and develop innovative solutions that protect the future of our planet.
