Companies have Substainable Reports

By 26. Februar 2010 No Comments

Just have a look at this page: Ethical Performance is the monthly business newsletter on corporate social responsibility and socially responsible investment, now in its eleventh year of publication.

This month published is the Report of Henkel – also online

The Sustainability Report provides an overview of the main ecological and social developments in fiscal 2009, including Henkel’s work to make its processes as energy-efficient and resource-conserving as possible.

2005-2009 sustainability performance figures recorded in the report show, for example, that over the period, per metric ton of output in each case:

*  carbon dioxide emissions decreased by 25 per cent,
*  energy consumption fell by 26 per cent,
*  water consumption dropped by 37 per cent
*  the volume of waste decreased by 12 per cent.

Over the same period, the number of occupational accidents also fell by 57 per cent.

The report emphasizes that sustainable development depends on the strong commitment of all Henkel employees. They are the people who establish the basis for sustainability around the world – for example in research and development, purchasing, manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution. Therefore, Henkel constantly invests in the training and continuing education of its staff.

Henkel strives to foster sustainable consumption. This is because the ecological footprint of many consumer goods depends not only on production factors but also, and to a very large extent, on their efficient use by consumers. Henkel’s brands and technologies are used daily in millions of households and industrial processes. They enable customers and consumers to make more efficient use of valuable resources such as energy and water. Henkel also promotes this idea through targeted communication.Berichte über Nachhaltigkeit sind aufwendig. Sie gleichen einem Machwerk der Bilanz, voller Zahlen und Daten. Deshalb wird dies auch sehr professionell aufgezogen und gilt im Unternehmen als wichtiges Dokument neben dem Jahresbericht, der Imagebroschüre und der Investor Relation Broschüre. Es hat Stellenwert! So einen Aufwand kann sich natürlich nicht jede Firma leisten, deshalb findet man diese Reports auf internationaler Ebene auch vorwiegend bei den großen Aktiengesellschaften, die Substainable Reports publizieren. Die Zeitung Ethical Performance tut dies auf monatlicher Basis. (Is the monthly business newsletter on corporate social responsibility and socially responsible investment, now in its eleventh year of publication.)

So. z.B. gerade die Firma Henkel: Spannend an Henkel ist bei dem Thema das Produkt. Es geht um ein Consumer Product und beeinflusst somit direkt das Verhalten der Verbraucher. Auch wenn der Bericht in Zahlen, Daten Fakten (ZDF) gemessen wird, und es wie immer um Co2, Energie und Wasserverbrauch geht, steht doch klar in der Ankündigung, dass man sich der Verantwortung im Kontakt mit dem Verbraucher bewusst ist.
