Sep '08
Henkel's leading international position in sustainability ratings was confirmed once again by the company's inclusion in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) market segment of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World).

Just 10 percent of the 2,500 largest corporations in the world are named to the DJSI World in an annual economic, ecological and corporate social responsibility review performed by SAM Indexes GmbH.

Henkel has performed exceptionally well again this year in numerous sustainability surveys and appraisals. In March, for example, Henkel garnered the 2008 ESG Award in the DAX category.

This accolade serves to single out excellence among the corporations listed in the DAX the German stock index in the fields of environmental compatibility, social responsibility and corporate governance.

"We are absolutely delighted at having been included once again in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. The exceptional ratings and rankings that we have earned in assessments performed by international experts from business, the financial world, the scientific community and various non-governmental organizations serve both to endorse what we have achieved to date, and to spur us on to make even further progress on the sustainability front," said Henkel CEO Kasper Rorsted.

"And we shall continue to lead the way in sustainable development irrespective of the challenges that we may face in the future."

Henkel maintains a close dialog with rating institutions specializing in sustainability issues. This serves to supplement the long-standing process of interchange and consultation that has existed between Henkel and ecological research institutes, special-interest groups and financial bodies, providing the company with a constant stream of important inputs and ideas.
