Henkel launches initiative to engage with suppliers on climate action

Henkel has launched a new engagement initiative to collaborate with its suppliers on CO2 emissions.

The new supplier engagement programme will aim to record and CO2 emissions from suppliers of the manufacturer across the world.

The programme, called Climate Connect aims to advance decarbonisation along the value chain through a collection of emissions data, upskilling and defined actions for reduction.

“Compared to large companies, our small- and medium-sized partners often find it difficult to record their CO2 emissions as they lack the capacity to do so. Yet this data is hugely relevant, as it is the only way to define targets and measures to reduce these emissions. For us at Henkel, this in return is the basis for reducing our Scope 3 emissions and achieving our climate protection targets,” said Henkel chief procurement officer, Bertrand Conquéret.

“The 'Climate Connect' program is therefore designed as a long-term partner project with which we want to support our suppliers directly and as individually as possible.”

Henkel will cooperate with “Manufacture 2030”, a partner in the field of carbon reduction, to address suppliers as well as contract manufacturers and suppliers of traded goods worldwide, where a total of more than 90 percent of Henkel’s CO2 upstream emissions occur.

The program, which will record key figures on energy, water consumption and waste volumes, will be rolled out and adapted gradually to an increasing number of suppliers in the different scope 3 categories in the future.
