As the Official Hydrogen Supporter of Paris 2024, Air Liquide took advantage of this partnership to bring all its employees together around the values and energy of sport. An all-new internal challenge has been launched across the Group, with an international relay as its emblem.

Surpassing oneself, perseverance, team spirit and diversity are values that motivate our 67,800 employees in the 72 countries where the Group is present. Air Liquide is a great team of multifaceted talents. To celebrate this collective spirit, and to reflect the Group's partnership with Paris 2024, Air Liquide launched in 2023 "Move, Share, Celebrate", an internal program that encourages everyone to take up a sporting activity, share moments of conviviality around sport and collectively celebrate the magic of the XXXIII Olympiad.

The highlight of this program is the organization by Air Liquide of a large relay to connect its teams around the world. In January 2024, the world tour of this relay baton named Movy began in Paris at the Group's Head Office. The relay baton started its journey in the Asia-Pacific region, from Shanghai to Seoul, via Tokyo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Auckland and Sydney, before reaching Africa. After a few stopovers in South Africa, Morocco and Tunisia, it joined the teams in Dubai, then India. It then headed up the Americas, where Movy traveled until mid-May. From Canada, it made its way across the United States before reaching Latin America. Movy will finish its journey in Europe, visiting several countries, before making its grand return to Paris in July!

Along the way, our employees have shared with us some of their favorite photos of the baton being passed.

A unifying adventure for our local teams, made possible thanks to the commitment and motivation of our employees, who passed the baton on to each other.
