Millennium Development Goals

By joining the Global Compact of the United Nations in 2003, Henkel made a commitment to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Through its social engagement, Henkel contributes directly to the attainment of these goals. Henkel does not influence the type of projects proposed under the employee engagement program. Nevertheless, the majority of these projects do indeed contribute to achieving these goals.
