Henkel Corporation is committed to leadership in sustainability. Innovating and achieving more with less is at the core of Henkel’s sustainability strategy.

Creating more value for our customers and consumers, for the communities we operate in, and for the company — while reducing our environmental footprint at the same time. This is the idea at the heart of our sustainability strategy and its related ambitious targets.

Henkel has set a 20-year goal for 2030 to triple the value we create for the environmental footprint made by our operations, products and services, known as “Factor 3”. From a plant perspective this relates to Energy & Climate, Materials & Waste and Water & Wastewater. Henkel’s adhesive plant in Virginia was very successful in reducing wastewater and water consumption by imploring A3 Lean Methodologies and installing timers or remote start/stops on all major equipment to bring them to a “Zero State” during off hours.
