Henkel Retains Position in Sustainability Ranking

Henkel recently announced that, for the seventh consecutive year, it has been listed as industry group leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World) and Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe (DJSI Europe). The company took first place in the Household & Personal Products category and remains the only company in its sector to feature in both the DJSI World and the DJSI Europe. The indices list companies that follow the principles of sustainable development in their business operations.

S&P Dow Jones Indices and the Swiss agency RobecoSAM ranking is reportedly based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, tracking issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, resource efficiency, supply chain standards, and labor practices. Only 10% of the world’s 2,500 largest corporations make the grade for selection in the DJSI World, while only 20% of the 600 largest corporations achieve a ranking in the DJSI Europe.

“The global challenges we all face call for each one of us to rethink the way we live, consume and do business,” said Kathrin Menges, executive vice president for Human Resources and chair of Henkel’s Sustainability Council. “Therefore, our aim is to achieve more with less. The importance of sustainability questions has significantly increased in our relations with our customers, consumers and industrial partners. Building on our many years of experience, we can position ourselves as a leading partner, offer our customers viable solutions for the future, and continue developing our business successfully. The results of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and other global ratings provide essential feedback for us, allowing us to check that we are on the right course.”
