For Henkel, sustainability means ensuring that the company meets the needs of society and the requirements of its stakeholders, both through its brands and technologies and in its role as an employer. And now the company is among the 22 finalists from throughout Europe in the first ever “European Corporate Responsibility Award.”
The company regards reaching the final as an
important acknowledgment of its commitment in the sustainability field. ”We are
delighted at this international affirmation of our strategy – particularly
given that this is the first pan-European sustainability award of its kind,” said
Christian-André Weinberger, corporate senior vice president and global
chief marketing officer at Henkel’s Laundry & Home Care business sector.
”We have no doubts that this issue is more important
today than it has ever been. We see enormous potential here for driving
innovation toward combining product performance and quality with responsibility
for people and the environment,” he added.
award recognizes innovative strategies that both promote business success and
anchor sustainability and corporate social responsibility as factors for
progress within the companies concerned. The competition was organized by the
European Independent Consulting Group (E-I), a network of independent strategy
and management consultants. The jury is comprised of representatives from the
EU Commission and renowned national personalities from the fields of politics,
business and society.
