Corporate Citizenship

Social engagement is part of our sense of responsibility and firmly embedded in our corporate values.

Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company. This is a tradition that dates back to our founder, Fritz Henkel, and is firmly embedded in our corporate values. Together with our employees, retirees, customers and consumers, Henkel and the Fritz Henkel Stiftung are able to support sustainable social projects around the world. They both support activities in the areas of social needs, education and science, fitness and health, arts and culture, and the environment. 

We have structured our activities around four core elements:

Corporate Volunteering: Voluntary social engagement of our employees and retirees

Social Partnerships: Henkel as a company promoting social projects around the world

Brand Engagement: Henkel brands supporting social projects worldwide

Emergency Aid: Immediate aid to people placed in urgent need by natural catastrophe

Corporate Citizenship in North America

Henkel supports the work of employee volunteers through the MIT (Make an Impact on Tomorrow) Program. This is a global program that has supported more than 12,800 volunteer projects since it began in 1998.

Any Henkel employee or retiree who performs volunteer work for social, charitable, cultural, educational, or environmental organizations can apply. Through the program, MIT volunteers can apply for financial support for their project or, for time-consuming projects, up to 5 days of paid time off.
