Hellmann strengthens sustainability commitment

Family-owned business, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, is expanding its Sustainability Division.

Hellmann has announced the appointment of Şükran Gencay and Daniel Hülemeyer as Heads of Sustainability.

“These newly established global positions underscore Hellmann’s strategic focus on sustainability, which is also reflected in the structure of its Management Board through the nomination of Stefan Borggreve since the beginning of this year,” said Hellmann.

“This new emphasis allows Hellmann to continue fulfilling its responsibilities and integrating sustainability across all business units globally in order to meet the challenges of the coming years in collaboration with its customers and partners.”

Gencay, as Head of Sustainability – Social & Governance, will lead the ongoing development and global implementation of Hellmann’s social sustainability initiatives.

“In this role, she will ensure that the company maintains its commitment to social responsibility,” said Hellmann.

“With her extensive experience in the logistics industry and through various leadership positions at Hellmann since 2020, Şükran Gencay is well equipped to take charge of the company’s social and governance goals and deepen its sustainability strategies.

“In her previous role as Global Head of Leadership & Culture, she successfully established and promoted a new corporate culture, a task she will continue to drive forward in her new position.”

Meanwhile, Hülemeyer, in the role of Head of Sustainability – Environment, will spearhead Hellmann’s efforts to decarbonise and integrate ecological practices across all product areas and its real estate infrastructure.

“His primary focus will be carbon footprint reduction, promotion of renewable energies, and fostering a culture of environmentally friendly innovations in collaboration with the newly established ‘Hellmann Innovation Hub’,” said Hellmann.

“Daniel Hülemeyer brings over 12 years of experience in sustainability topics at Hellmann and has previously led the global Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) management team.”

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Chief Digital Officer, Stefan Borggreve, said this new organisation reflects the importance of Hellmann’s strategic direction.

“We want to be a driving force for positive change – even beyond our company boundaries,” he said.

“With Daniel Hülemeyer and Şükran Gencay, we have two outstanding personalities who, together with the global teams, will turn our sustainability vision into reality.”
