German household products company Henkel has published a report outlining its environmental progress last year.

The report claims that in 2007 the multinational cut the release of heavy metals from its operations by 57%, reduced energy use by 21% and reduced workplace accidents by 72%.

The company aims to make further cuts to energy and water use as well as reducing the waste it produces.

Full details can be found on the Henkel website.
