    Henkel has successfully produced and marketed brand-name products for more than 130 years. It is therefore fully aware that success depends on providing products and technologies that are precisely tailored to customers' wishes. This fundamental approach is equally relevant to the Company's communication with stakeholders.

    We use a large number of communication instruments to satisfy the specific information needs of our stakeholders. We communicate detailed information and background material on the subject of sustainability through the Sustainability Report, the Internet and our intranet pages. Current events are published through press releases, consumer information channels or the employee newspaper.
