Social engagement is part of our sense of responsibility and firmly embedded in our corporate values.
Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company. This is a tradition that dates back to our founder, Fritz Henkel, and is firmly embedded in our corporate values. Together with our employees, retirees, customers and consumers, Henkel and the Fritz Henkel Stiftung are able to support sustainable social projects around the world. They both support activities in the areas of social needs, education and science, fitness and health, arts and culture, and the environment.
Our four pillars
We support employees and retirees in their voluntary social engagement through the "Make an Impact on Tomorrow" initiative.
In social partnerships, we support social initiatives and public institutions at Henkel sites around the world.
In addition to Henkel's corporate-wide social engagement, our brands are also involved in partnerships with social initiatives and public institutions around the world.
After natural disasters, Henkel responds quickly and pragmatically, providing aid through our foundation, the "Fritz Henkel Stiftung", wherever it is needed in the world.
