U.S. retail giant Wal-Mart has selected Henkel to receive its "Wal-Mart Sustainability Award." Henkel was recognized as the one company demonstrating the most comprehensive approach to sustainability and making a substantial contribution to Wal-Mart's sustainability strategy.

The Wal-Mart Sustainability Award was presented to Henkel at Wal-Mart's recent Supplier Summit held in Bentonville, AR. Key to this recognition is that Henkel, with its 130-plus years of experience in the sustainability field, has forged a significant partnership with Wal-Mart in their Sustainable Value Networks, including those focused on ingredients and packaging efforts. In addition to being the only supplier to win the Sustainability Award, Henkel was also one of only five U.S. domestic suppliers to be nominated for "Supplier of the Year" in the consumables category, by achieving strong results across a number of measurable business objectives.

Henkel's record on sustainability and corporate social responsibility has been recognized on a global level. In December 2008 the company was recognized as "Germany's Most Sustainable Brand" at the first German Sustainability Congress. And in September 2008, Henkel was the only company in the FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) market segment to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World). Only 10% of the world's 2,500 largest companies make the grade for inclusion in the DJSI World.
