ACT for a sustainable future
Air Liquide has long been working to combine growth with concern for the environment and society. Air Liquide contributes through its environmental and societal actions and commitments to achieve some of the Sustainable Development Goals set up by the United Nations, wherever it can make a real difference.
Advancing towards a sustainable future
Inventing a sustainable future has always driven us to innovate for our customers, patients and employees. As a global company, it is our responsibility to take concrete actions to address the environmental and societal challenges we all face, particularly in a context of profound transformation and uncertainties. From the climate emergency to healthcare transformation and creating a more inclusive society, all of our stakeholders expect us to take decisive measures with real impact. This is the purpose of our people, this is the purpose of everything we do.
Sustainability has become a prerequisite for any business development. But more importantly, it has become a profound conviction, which inspires and engages all of our 67,100 employees throughout the world. By combining financial and sustainability performance, we have opened a new chapter in our history with our ADVANCE strategic plan. With this clear roadmap, we are acting for a more sustainable future. Our engagement is strong and with the energy and commitment of our teams and the support of our shareholders, I am confident that we will advance together and progress for the benefit of all.
Chief Executive Officer
Air Liquide has a growth trajectory
This means performing steadily in the present and preparing well for the future thanks to a deeply resilient and diversified business model. Performance and Sustainability are therefore both core to our strategy.
It also means supporting our customers and patients and addressing the urgency of climate change and societal transformation.
Inventing and shaping the future with state of the art technologies, operational competences and services close to customers or patients, has always been in our DNA.
But it is clear today that the role of a company like ours goes beyond this. As a matter of fact we all share - States, companies and individuals - the responsibility and the mission of building a sustainable future.
Let's act for a sustainable future!
