          "Together with the development organization Solidaridad, Henkel is addressing these challenges. It is currently engaged in seven initiatives in Colombia, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua and Nigeria to find innovative, market-based solutions focused on increasing the yield for smallholders. The focus is on training in best practice approaches, including climate-friendly agriculture, along with exerting an influence on policy and involving stakeholders. To date, around 34,000 smallholders have been reached on some 305,000 hectares under cultivation...Another project phase was completed with our support in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, in 2020. The project was launched in 2016 and has already provided support for a large number of smallholders on their path to certification by the RSPO. The scope of the project has now been expanded through input from Henkel and BASF. By training more than 2,000 smallholders in how to increase yields and prevent environmental damage through the right farming practices, yields have increased on average by up to 20 percent annually."

          What initiatives does the company participate in?: Collaborate with Solidaridad organisation to support smallholders
          "Together with the development organization Solidaridad, Henkel is addressing these challenges. It is currently engaged in seven initiatives in Colombia, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua and Nigeria to find innovative, market-based solutions focused on increasing the yield for smallholders. The focus is on training in best practice approaches, including climate-friendly agriculture, along with exerting an influence on policy and involving stakeholders. To date, around 34,000 smallholders have been reached on some 305,000 hectares under cultivation...Another project phase was completed with our support in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, in 2020. The project was launched in 2016 and has already provided support for a large number of smallholders on their path to certification by the RSPO. The scope of the project has now been expanded through input from Henkel and BASF. By training more than 2,000 smallholders in how to increase yields and prevent environmental damage through the right farming practices, yields have increased on average by up to 20 percent annually."

This includes driving innovation in packaging solutions for our consumers and industrial customers, as well as engaging and collaborating with partners from across the entire value chain. At the same time, we aim to reduce production waste and promote a circular economy in our operations. We drive progress by systematically identifying waste streams and creating closed-loop systems where possible. Our focus lies on increasing recycling within our sites and on collaborating with our packaging suppliers. Our initiatives are centered around four key areas: Reducing material consumption and waste generation, reusing materials, recycling materials, and recovering energy...In 2020, we achieved a reduction of 44 percent. Based on this achievement, we aim to further reduce the overall volume of waste at our production sites by 50 percent per ton of product by 2025 compared to the base year 2010...Henkel is working with partners to trial further ways of reducing packaging materials. In 2020, for example, our certified natural cosmetics brand N.A.E. (Naturale Antica Erboristeria) launched a pilot project in cooperation with Amazon: a “solid item box”consisting of a solid shower care product and face wash, a solid shampoo and a reusable soap sachet – with no additional material used to wrap each item inside the box. The boxes are made of 100 percent FSC-certified paper and serve as shipping packaging, eliminating the need for additional secondary packaging from Amazon."
