Henkel Day dedicated to sustainability worldwide

Henkel employees in more than 75 countries celebrated the 136th anniversary of the company on September 26, 2012. Henkel Day was dedicated to the theme of sustainability.

To convey our Henkel Sustainability Strategy 2030 – achieving more with less – throughout the company, we have pursued a dialogue-oriented approach since it was launched at the end of 2011. In 2012, we conducted numerous campaigns and events associated with sustainability. This was the case on Henkel Day, too. The idea was to familiarize our employees all over the world with our sustainability strategy with the help of various actions, because only if all employees understand the principles and challenges of sustainability will these become a guideline for behavior and decision-making.

At the Regional Center Africa/Middle East in Dubai, employees learned about the Sustainability Strategy at an information stand on Henkel Day. All of the employees also used the day to clean up an area of the beach. A quiz on sustainability was conducted, too, as it was in China, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Sweden and the UK. The purpose of the quiz was to communicate the topic of sustainability in a way that was fun. In Austria, Germany and Russia, health was the focus of Henkel Day. In Japan and Turkey, employees planted trees.
