Corporate Citizenship

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. It’s another way we support our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

We are united by our desire to help those around us and 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 help make life better today and for the future.


Henkel employees volunteer their time and talent to support causes that range from education and skills training to fighting food insecurity, serving health and housing needs, to protecting our planet, and to championing equity and inclusion.

Through the Make an Impact on Tomorrow (MIT) initiative, Henkel supports the volunteer efforts of employees and retirees and provide. For 25 years, our MIT program has provided financial and in-kind donations, and paid time-off to support the causes closest to employees’ hearts. Since the program’s inception, we have donated $41M to support 17,000 charitable projects in 100 countries.
