Energy Efficiency

Energy. Efficient. Easy as that.

Everybody needs energy. Whether it’s charging our favorite gadgets, heating water for a shower or powering factories that make the products we love. But while we all need energy, we also all need to be aware of the environmental impact of energy consumption – and look for ways to consume less energy or use it more efficiently.

For businesses, there are opportunities to improve energy efficiency at every stage in the value chain. This ranges from the criteria used when selecting raw materials, all the way through to ways of optimizing the transport networks that carry products out into the world. It also covers investment in state-of-the-art production sites that take advantage of digital technology by collecting data related to resource consumption – and using it to improve efficiency and cut waste. Here at Henkel, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint of our production by 75 percent and draw 100 percent of the electricity we use from renewable sources by 2030.

There’s even more potential for improving energy efficiency after products have left a factory – and are being used by consumers. And because Henkel’s brands and technologies are used millions of times every day in households and industrial processes worldwide, we’re committed to developing innovative products that consume less energy. Alongside this, we also run campaigns encouraging responsible behavior and raising awareness about the importance of energy efficiency. We’ve set the target of helping our customers and consumers to save 50 million tons of CO2 when using our products by 2020.

Henkel’s approach to energy efficiency is part of our comprehensive sustainability strategy. We aim to achieve more with less – developing products and technologies that enhance quality of life while consuming less materials and resources. As part of this, we follow the long­term vision of becoming a climate­ positive company and making an active contribution to climate protection.
