Sustainable development

We strive to contribute to a more sustainable world

Ambition, commitments and objectives

Air Liquide strives to contribute to a more sustainable world.

Two prerequisites: safety and ethics

Safety is our first responsibility as a manufacturer with a zero accident goal at each site.

The Group also ensures strict compliance with human rights and business ethics.

As part of our NEOS 2016-2020 company program, the Group has set two objectives in order to contribute to sustainability.

Improving air quality for better environment and health reasons

The air is a common, vital and universal good. Its quality is threatened in many parts of the world by unbalanced development, causing public health problems (heart disease, strokes, and respiratory diseases) and exacting a substantial cost, both human and financial, to society.

Pursuing in an active dialogue with its stakeholders

It is by talking continuously and extensively with our stakeholders and collaborating and working together with them we can contribute to a more sustainable world.
