Henkel Sustainability Commitments
Cover 100 percent of our demand with oils whose responsible sourcing is certified or externally confirmed: All palm and palm kernel oil used in our products should be derived from sustainably cultivated sources in line with the RSPO’s Mass Balance model. We are also aiming at certification according to the RSPO’s segregation model for the portion of palm oil and palm kernel oil that is directly sourced. Establish full traceability and transparency of the palm oil and palm kernel oil used in our products: We have learned from our activities that the issue of transparency and traceability needs further development, especially for palm-kernel-oil-based derivatives. We also find that cross-industry initiatives are needed to verify targets for zero net deforestation. With this in mind, we continue to pursue the goal of full transparency and traceability by 2025, together with our partners. Improve the livelihood of smallholders and protection of nature: We are building on the success of our collaborative projects with smallholders and will continue strengthening our commitment to integrate raw materials from these smallholders into our supply chain. Greater consideration is also given to ecological aspects while supporting climate-friendly agriculture and a positive impact on biodiversity.
