Creative Oxygen, our signature

Creative Oxygen is the signature we use in every country in which we are present. The word creative conveys the permanent capacity for invention on the part of Air Liquide’s employees, while the word oxygen is a reminder of Air Liquide’s history. Oxygen is the source of the Group’s development and is a vital resource for industry and health. More than just a molecule, oxygen is a source of inspiration for our employees, who are working to create new applications, for existing markets and those of tomorrow.

Our safety culture

Safety relies on commitment from all and is everybody’s responsibility. Safe and reliable operations support the Group’s sustainable growth. To achieve both, our industrial fundamentals consist of technical standards supported by our Industrial Management System (IMS), which covers all aspects of an industrial workplace, whether it is IT projects, operations, logistics or services provided by the Group. An effective compliance to the IMS is not a matter of choice; rather, it is at the heart of the daily work life of Air Liquide employees.

Safety is not a matter of statistics, but of people, their health and their lives.

Consequently, the Group’s entities in India are also applying and following the Industrial Management System (IMS), which covers all aspects of an industrial workplace, whether it be IT projects, operations, logistics or services provided by the Group. An effective compliance to the IMS is not a matter of choice; rather, it is at the heart of the daily work life of Air Liquide employees.

Safety: a VALUE, not a priority

Safety is not just a priority, as priorities change hour-to-hour and day-to-day based on what is going on in our lives, our work, and the world around us. For Air Liquide, safety is a VALUE, which remains constant and is formed by our environment, families, friends, and those around us. Our value defines us and is the basis on which we make our choices and decisions that directs us between what is right and what is wrong, safe and unsafe. When Safety is a value, it is not an additional part of your job or an "add-on"; instead it is an essential part of what you do and who you are.

"My journey with the association has been truly meaningful, and the content smiles on the faces of these angels say it all!”

“During my first visit to TARA in July 2014, I was informed of the upcoming project - TARA Girls - a project to rescue girl children who have been in situations of great danger and having no place to live, host them safely and empower them by giving them access to quality education, as a means to assimilate them into society and to assert their full rights. The zeal, involvement and commitment shown by the volunteers, motivated me to take up the project. I have seen it grow from a home with 2 girls in July 2015, to 11 angels today. My journey with the association has been truly meaningful, and the content smiles on the faces of these angels say it all!”

Training underprivileged women in livestock farming in India

The Air Liquide Foundation supports the Objectif France-Inde and their project to develop goat farming in an educational farm in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India. In India, many marginalized women with very limited financial resources are joining Self Help Groups (SHGs).

In order to help these SHGs to empower, Objectif France-Inde wants to develop goat farming focused on meat production on an educational farm.
