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 skillsets 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 contributions that improve our society and adhere to our purpose and corporate values.
Deeply embedded in our corporate culture is the drive and character of Corporate Citizenship to go beyond our core daily business and make a voluntary social commitment. With these efforts, we are letting our communities know with more than words that we are Pioneers at Heart for the Good of Generations.
Henkel Sustainability Program for Kids
“Educate for a more sustainable future” is a program that aims to educate children (grades 3&4) about the importance of sustainability and the impact of their daily actions on the overall global environment, such as saving water and reducing waste. In return, children influence their families to adopt better practices. GCC joined the project in 2013 and has educated over 4,000 students in UAE and KSA until date.
Henkel Sustainability Ambassador Program
This program aims to educate Henkel employees about the importance of sustainability and the history of the company’s sustainability initiatives since its foundation while shedding the light on future plans for Henkel 2030 sustainability vision. The program regards those employees as sustainability ambassadors for their role in supporting the company’s sustainability initiative.
Discover the three areas in which we organize our engagement:
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 where Henkel operates to support social initiatives and public institutions.
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.
Henkel provides emergency relief in the event of natural disasters and pandemics by giving immediate aid to people placed in urgent need due to an unexpected crisis. Henkel and its employees have donated numerous products and financial support to people in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
