Our manufacturing journey

Sustainable and conscious value chain: A sharp increase in CO2 in the atmosphere is causing a warming up of the planet and is the main cause of climate change. Without turning away from our current economic strategy and lifestyle, the average temperature of the planet could rise by up to 5 degrees by the end of this century – with serious consequences for the planet and the living being populating it.


To address global warming and limit the temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius, as advised by scientists, the annual level of CO2 emission per person needs to be reduced worldwide from today 6.8 tons to roughly 2 tons.

As leading brand within Henkel portfolio, Persil constantly work in improving ist footprint impact across its value chain, effectively contributing to Henkel "Factor 3" strategy.
