For the eighth consecutive year, Henkel has been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World) and Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe (DJSI Europe).

The inclusion in both indices confirms Henkel’s excellent performance and stronghold in the household products category. The Germany-based consumer goods player emphasized that it continues to be the only company in its sector to feature in both of the indices, which include the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide.

S&P Dow Jones Indices and the Swiss agency RobecoSAM announced earlier in Q3 2014 the results of their 2014 sustainability assessments. A thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance is carried out in order to establish the DJSI rankings, evaluating areas such as corporate governance, resource efficiency and supply chain standards. Only 10 percent of the world's 2500 largest corporations make the grade for selection in the DJSI World, while only 20 percent of the 600 largest European corporations make it to the DJSI Europe.

“Building on our experience, we are pioneering new solutions that will drive sustainable development while continuing to grow our business successfully. The results of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and other global ratings confirm that we are on the right track to implement our ambitious sustainability strategy.” said Kathrin Menges, Executive Vice President Human Resources and Chair of Henkel’s Sustainability Council.

Henkel is steadfast on sustainability and its efforts in the Gulf and Middle East are centered towards driving health and safety, enhancing employee well-being, reducing environmental impact and contributing to community development. The company carved a niche in sustainability across the region with a number of initiatives to reinforce its sustainability mission across Gulf and Middle East, including sustainability awareness campaigns among the community, educating about the perils to the environment and raising awareness about recycling plastic, paper and metals.

One of Henkel’s successful sustainability programs implemented in the GCC, is the Schools Education Program. The program is designed to educate children at a younger age on how small changes in their lifestyle can make a huge impact on the environment for a better tomorrow.

Another successful endeavor as a part of Henkel’s sustainability drive was the TapOut project for Jordina, a leading producer of cakes and biscuits in Amman, Jordan. The project was implemented by GCC’s Adhesive Technologies Packaging and Consumer Goods Business Unit (AI). The carton closing system using TECHNOMELT bonding products seals the top and bottom of the carton through an automated process. This new method helps reduce the use of landfill by 81%, saving both adhesive and tape waste and is expected to save customers 650 hours every month, leading to more efficient production overall.

Henkel's performance in this field has repeatedly been arbitrated as outstanding by several national and international ranking agencies. Henkel was listed for the third time in the Stoxx ESG Leaders indices as leading global company in terms of environmental, social and governance criteria. It has also been included in the Global Challenge Index since 2010 for its wide-ranging commitment to sustainability. Henkel’s inclusion in the three new indices Euronext Vigeo World 120, Europe 120, Eurozone 120 has been confirmed for the second time. It also holds Prime Status in the Oekom sustainability assessment, making it one of the world’s best in its sector.

Henkel is determined to triple the value that it creates against the environmental footprint of its products and technologies by 2030. Over the past 11 years, the company has cut water and energy consumption by 51 percent and 44 percent per ton of production, respectively, and reduced waste by 47 percent per ton of production. Over the same period, the number of work accidents dropped by 90 percent.

Henkel provides extensive information on sustainability together with an overview of all relevant rankings and ratings on its website at www.henkel.com/sustainability
