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’s commitment is based on three pillars: volunteer engagement by our employees, partnerships with charitable organizations, and emergency aid with focus on natural disasters and pandemics. Discover the three areas in which we organize our engagement.

We believe in adding value to the communities in which we operate. This is a core belief supporting our business principle of mutual benefit, the basis on which we build our relationships with our stakeholders.

Our social commitment is firmly embedded in our corporate values and in our corporate history. It is based on the conviction that solutions which are jointly reached on a basis of partnership will benefit all concerned.

Social Partnerships

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. 

Voluntary commitment of employees 

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.

Emergency Aid

We support people who find themselves in an emergency situation due to crises, conflicts or natural disasters quickly and unbureaucratically and offer immediate aid in cooperation with the Fritz Henkel Stiftung.
