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.

Our four pillars

Corporate Volunteering:

We support employees and retirees in their voluntary social engagement through the "Make an Impact on Tomorrow" initiative.

Social Partnerships:

In social partnerships, we support social initiatives and public institutions at Henkel sites around the world.

Brand Engagement:

In addition to Henkel's corporate-wide social engagement, our brands are also involved in partnerships with social initiatives and public institutions around the world.

Emergency Aid:

After natural disasters, Henkel responds quickly and pragmatically, providing aid through our foundation, the "Fritz Henkel Stiftung", wherever it is needed in the world.

Additional information can be found in our Sustainability Report.

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 13,800 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.
