Sustainable Development


At Linde, we live our mission of making our world more productive.

Through our high-quality solutions, technologies and services we are making our customers more successful and helping to sustain and protect our planet. 

In 2018, for example, we enabled our customers to avoid 90 million metric tons of CO2e. We also work safely to continuously improve our own energy efficiency and avoided more than 5 million metric tons of CO2e from 2009-2018.

As we improve, we are investing in the communities where we live and work. We hire locally and source most of our products and services in the countries in which they are used. Additionally, we actively support our local communities through employee engagement and volunteerism as well as charitable contributions. 

The results we have achieved in making our world more productive have earned recognition by premier sustainability investment indexes and rankings, including the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices’ World Index.
