At Henkel, Corporate Citizenship is our way of “Making Society Future-fit”: with our activities, we empower people through education that provides them with the skills and competencies that lead to innovative ideas, sustainable behavior, and new digital solutions. We work together with our employees and retirees, customers, consumers, and NGOs to actively contribute to social progress and give back to our communities in ways that improve our society and adhere to our purpose and corporate values.
Corporate Citizenship – going beyond our core daily business to make a voluntary social commitment – is deeply embedded in our corporate culture. With these efforts, we are letting our communities know with more than words that we are Pioneers at Heart for the Good of Generations.
We care and we act to improve the quality of life in our communities across North America.
We are united by our desire to help those around us. We believe everyone can make a difference for the good of generations by engaging with our communities. We are grateful for our employees’ volunteerism and social partners who do their part to help make life better today and for the future.
This video clip shares a few highlights of the advocacy and impact of our employees and partners.
We take responsibility for the good of generations. Building on the integrity inherent to a family-owned business, we leverage the unique Henkel spirit by entering into social partnerships in the communities where we live and work. At a corporate level as well as through our brands, business units and regional operations, we seek and support ideas and programs that meet societal problems and challenges worldwide.
Our goal is to ensure the future readiness of society through education by providing financial support, product donations and expertise.
Volunteering is the lifeblood of our social commitment. When we get active on personal level, the impact can be life-changing! That is why we support our employees, retirees and teams in their social volunteering activities that contribute to a better world.
