Creating sustainable packaging is easier said than done. Together with its suppliers, Henkel aims to continue developing sustainable product portfolios across all its business units, for a sustainable future and with an eye to the circular economy.
In this way, while environmental footprint is reduced. Traditionally, Henkel had a «cradle-to-gate» approach: sustainability was searched and maintained from the raw material selection, to manufacturing processes and logistics – but everything that happened to the product during the consumer use-phase, including waste disposal, was not taken into consideration. Today, Henkel has a «cradle-to-grave» view to contribute to the needs of a circular economy, where waste disposal and recycling are crucial in order to complete the cycle, so that sustainability is integrated into every stage of the products’ life.
