Henkel receives Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Award 20 June 2024

Henkel recently announced that it has received a prestigious Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Award based on its demonstrated sustainability leadership in its operations over the last year.

Entrants were evaluated on several metrics, including their energy and digital automation solutions, energy use reductions, operational efficiency, and embracing circularity across the value chain. 

Henkel aims to be climate-positive by 2030 and has so far reduced its emissions by 61% (Scope 1 and Scope 2 versus 2010 baseline). This has been achieved through leveraging energy efficiency tools and technologies, using alternative energy and biofuels, and integrating electrification as critical components in its operations. The company has also implemented science-based targets to reduce raw materials and packaging footprints and has established a supplier GHG engagement approach to assess the Scope 3 upstream impact of its suppliers.

“I would like to congratulate Henkel for its outstanding effort in making strides to reach its sustainability goals over the past year. Reaching net zero is a collective goal, and we need to work together to share the best sustainable practices and support each other in decarbonisation. Henkel has played a noteworthy role in this journey over the past year,” says Mourad Tamoud, chief supply chain officer, Schneider Electric.

Accepting the honour on Henkel’s behalf, Global Key Account Manager Pia Oelze shared the company’s gratitude and pride in working alongside Schneider Electric: “Henkel is humbled and honoured to receive this award. It represents personal achievement, exceptional teamwork between Henkel and Schneider Electric to explore solution-oriented sustainability programs, and the collective progress we have made to create a better tomorrow.”
