The Fight Against Climate Change

Aug 31, 2022 | News

Climate change is now one of the biggest concerns around the world, with the scarcity of resources posing many challenges. Henkel has set ambitious targets as part of its sustainability strategy, with their production aiming to be climate-positive by 2030 and 100% of their electricity coming from renewable sources.

Henkel are working with customers to develop solutions tailored to reduce their environmental footprint. The focus on saving emissions and energy, whilst optimising the safety of product, is one of Henkel’s driving points.

But how will they do this?

  • By continually checking and working to improve energy efficiency. Henkel’s goal is to reduce energy consumption by 50% per ton of product by 2030
  • Sourcing 100% of their consumed electricity from renewable sources via on site production, direct purchase and virtual coverage
  • Replacing their last remaining fossil fuels uses in production, with climate neutral gas such as biogas
  • Supplying surplus carbon-neutral energy to third parties
  • Reducing the carbon footprint of their production by 65% by 2025, and by 75% by 2030
  • Implementing a digital environment management system to track energy use and daily consumed resources
  • Support customers in the production of paper straws
  • Offer low emission products to all customers
  • Incorporate circular water use across key manufacturing sites
  • Implement state of the art technologies to generate thermal energy without fossil fuels

Henkel’s research team are constantly developing smarter packaging that uses a maximum amount recycled material, or easily recycled material, whilst focusing on improving their production sites and processes around the world. By 2025, 100% of Henkel’s packaging will be recyclable or reusable, 30% of plastic content share for their consumer goods products and 2 billion customer contacts through targeted information on recycling.

Being a multinational company, Henkel have already implemented a water treatment facility at their site in Jundiai, Brazil, which processes rainwater for reuse in irrigation or flushing toilets. The Henkel site in Maru, South Korea, is also fully equipped with solar panels. Their Montornes des Valles Aerospace plant in Spain has already successfully reached carbon neutrality.

By working together, we can fight to reduce climate change, save valuable resources and protect the environment.
