Palm Oil and Henkel
Henkel is a small and indirect user of palm oil. We use less than 0.2 percent of the palm oil and palm kernel oil produced worldwide. We mostly use palm kernel oil: Two-thirds of our annual demand is palm kernel oil (the majority is used for surfactants), only one third is palm oil.
Our New Palm Oil Targets 2020
Henkel aims for zero net deforestation, full traceability, physical progress in our value chain and an increased supply of sustainable oil until 2020. At the same time Henkel supports smallholders by establishing safety standards, in addition to providing sustainable improvements of incomes and livelihoods. In Honduras alone 17.5000 smallholders, who produce over 500.000 tons of palm(kernel) oil per year, are already being supported.
