Building on its existing efforts and progress in sustainable packaging, Henkel is stepping up its commitment to further promote a circular economy: The company has set itself additional targets embedded in an expanded strategic framework. By 2025, 100 percent of Henkel’s packaging will be recyclable, reusable or compostable*. Within the same timeframe, Henkel aims to use 35 percent recycled plastic for its consumer goods products in Europe.
Henkel has been focusing on sustainability in packaging for several decades: All of the company’s packaging is designed to meet consumers’ expectations while using the least possible amount of material – and the most sustainable materials. Reflecting the three key phases of a circular value chain, Henkel’s new strategic framework represents a holistic approach. It underlines the company’s ambition as a leader in sustainability to drive progress toward a sustainable future together with its partners from across industries.
“It is more important than ever for companies, consumers, governments and other organizations to drive progress toward a circular economy. Only by reusing and recycling as much material as possible will we be able to live well within the resource limits of our planet. This concept is at the heart of our approach to sustainable packaging,” says Kathrin Menges, Executive Vice President Human Resources at Henkel and Chair of Henkel’s Sustainability Council. “Together with our partners along the entire value chain, we want to include materials from sustainable sources into smart designs to close the loop – for the benefit of people and the planet.”
Henkel’s new framework for sustainable packaging reflects the three key phases of a circular value chain. Each of these phases is translated into specific actions:
Progress toward sustainable packaging will only be possible if organizations from across industries and along the value chain work together. That’s why Henkel is collaborating with a variety of partners to drive innovation in packaging development and promote improved recycling infrastructure. For example, the company is participating in the New Plastics Economy – an initiative led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation that brings stakeholders together to rethink and redesign the future of plastics and build momentum toward a circular economy. Henkel is also partnering with the Plastic Bank, a social enterprise aiming to stop ocean plastic and provide opportunities for people in poverty by giving them a chance to earn money or services by removing plastic waste from their local environment. The plastic collected is made available for recycling.

Driving progress toward a circular economy: Henkel’s new strategic framework for sustainable packaging reflects three key phases of a circular value chain.
Through a more compacted formula and a redesigned bottle for its liquid laundry detergents such as Persil, Henkel realized an absolute reduction in packaging material of 3,500 tons of plastic per year. The bottles are 100 percent recyclable.
Henkel has made various achievements in the field of sustainable packaging. For example, the bottles of the new hair and personal care brand Nature Box consist of 25 percent recycled plastic. The cap also contains 25 percent recycled material from post-consumer waste.
The PET bottles of the Pro Nature range from the brands biff, Sidolin and Pril consist of 100 percent recycled plastic. Refill packs allow consumers to reuse the original packaging.
The bottle used for Pattex Made at Home all-purpose glue – and also the adjustable applicator nozzle for filigree and wide-area gluing – are made of 100 percent recycled material.
