Henkel debates the issues

In the current socio-political climate, public opinion is often influenced by the stance taken by interest groups. In the stereotyped approaches put forward by the various social or political players, it is often not clear exactly how individuals or companies view these topics. This is what prompted us to take an active part in this debate, by taking a closer look at selected topical issues. What significance does the issue have for Henkel? How do we approach it as a company? Have we taken any action as a result? If yes, what? A multitude of questions. The following examples illustrate how we answer them.

Implementation of EU chemicals regulation (REACH/GHS/GPS)
Genetic engineering – an enduring subject of public debate
Developing alternatives to animal testing
Climate change – our contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Our contribution to the sustainable cultivation of palm oil
