Henkel Re-Enters Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (9/8/09)

September 8, 2009

International consumer goods manufacturer Henkel, Düsseldorf, Germany, has once again been included as a leader in the FMCG market segment of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. The Index lists corporations that follow the principles of sustainable development in their business operations.

Only ten percent of the world’s 2,500 largest companies make the grade for inclusion in the DJSI World. For ten years, SAM Indexes GmbH has been assessing companies for the annual listing according to stipulated economic, ecological and social criteria.

“We are delighted to receive this international recognition of our sustainability strategy,” says Kasper Rorsted, chairman of the Henkel Management Board. “In difficult economic times, it is more important than ever to recognize sustainable development for the opportunities that it brings. We see enormous potential for innovations that combine performance and quality with responsibility toward people and the environment. It is our objective to position Henkel as a leading sustainability partner for our industrial customers, the retail trade and consumers alike.”
