Driving sustainability forward together

Dialogue with sustainability experts from different fields plays an important role for us in driving implementation of our sustainability strategy. We therefore talk to experts from various parts of the world on a regular basis and invite them to take part in discussion events. This dialogue helps us to adjust our activities to reflect external expectations in the different regions and to develop the most appropriate solutions in each particular context.

As part of a series of round table discussions, Dr. Rob Melnick, Executive Dean of the Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University, USA, spoke to Henkel employees in May 2012 in Düsseldorf. His talk focused on the challenges that regions and cities face in reconciling a higher quality of life with sustainability. Already in February 2012, Prof. Dr. Uwe Schneidewind, President of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, discussed the challenges and opportunities presented by sustainable development.

The goal of this internal discussion series and the dialogue with external stakeholders in 2012 was to give employees a deeper understanding of Henkel's Sustainability Strategy 2030 and communicate it to external stakeholders.
