HENKEL NAMED TO LATEST DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY WORLD INDEX

September 12, 2008

Henkel has announced that it has once again been included in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) market segment of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World). Just 10% of the 2,500 largest corporations in the world are named to the DJSI World in an annual economic, ecological and corporate social responsibility review performed by SAM Indexes GmbH.

"We are absolutely delighted at having been included once again in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,” said Henkel CEO Kasper Rorsted. “The exceptional ratings and rankings that we have earned in assessments performed by international experts from business, the financial world, the scientific community and various non-governmental organizations serve both to endorse what we have achieved to date, and to spur us on to make even further progress on the sustainability front.”

Henkel maintains a close dialog with rating institutions specializing in sustainability issues. This serves to supplement the long-standing process of interchange and consultation that has existed between Henkel and ecological research institutes, special-interest groups, and financial bodies, providing the company with a constant stream of important inputs and ideas.
