Decarbonization commitment, climate-positive progress and notable sustainability results earn top recognition

During Schneider Electric’s Europe Supplier Day, the company presented Henkel with its prestigious Sustainability Award. The honor recognizes Henkel’s exemplary work on climate action and commitment to Schneider Electric’s the Zero Carbon Project, which aims to halve CO2 emissions among its supplier community’s operations by 2025.

Maija Kirveennummi, Sustainability Manager at Henkel Adhesive Technologies, accepted the award on the company’s behalf and, in conversation with Schneider Electric’s Esther Finidori, Vice-President of Environment, Strategy and Sustainability, explained how Henkel is driving sustainability through focus, impact and speed.  

“Tackling climate challenges requires focus on key areas where we can have an impact,” said Kirveennummi. “Through materials expertise and scientific know-how, Henkel develops products that enable circularity and emissions savings so our customers can meet their sustainability goals. In addition, we put a lot of effort in decarbonizing our own operations by investing in energy efficiency as well as renewable electricity and fuels. Already today, Henkel has reduced CO2 emissions per ton of product by 50 percent over the last ten years and intends to be climate-positive by 2030.”

Finidori added that partnership and openness are critical for sustainability impact: “Sustainability is core to Schneider Electric’s purpose, and we believe partnering with companies like Henkel is critical for our collective success. The Henkel team openly shares best practices, continues to make great progress on sustainability initiatives that contribute to Schneider Electric’s ambitions, and enthusiastically embraces and supports our programs as both customer and supplier. This award is well-deserved.”  

In closing via video, Ulla Hüppe, Director Sustainability Henkel Adhesive Technologies, expressed the company’s gratitude: “Henkel’s intense focus on sustainability has three key dimensions: Ensuring a regenerative planet, enabling thriving communities and being a trusted partner. This third pillar is what underpins all we can achieve. Our relationship with Schneider Electric is critically important and we are committed to building on our sustainability success – together. Our entire team thanks Schneider Electric for this honor.”
