Henkel marks International Volunteer Day worldwide

Henkel has highlighted the impact of individual contributions in voluntary social projects across the world.

As part of International Volunteer Day on 5 December, Henkel ran volunteering projects across all regions on that day. This is because Voluntary social engagement has been an integral part of Henkel’s company culture since its foundation in 1876.

The company makes a commitment over and above its business activities, however, it relies greatly on the voluntary engagement of its employees. The company also launched the “Make an Impact on Tomorrow” initiative in 1998, which became one of the first of its kind in Germany. It aims to dedicate support to its employees and retired workers in their voluntary engagement.

On International Volunteer Day, UK employees are collecting and donating food to the local food bank. Over in Ireland, Henkel employees support a wide range of charities. This includes participation in several fundraising and volunteering activities, including coffee mornings, sleeping outside, running and wearing pink.

In total, the company has supported over 14,000 charitable projects in more than 100 countries. Read more.
