Through transparency and continuous dialogue, Air Liquide commits to strengthening relations with its stakeholders: customers and patients, shareholders, suppliers, local communities and the public sphere.

A diversified Board of Directors and close relationships with shareholders

Being international, independent and gender-balanced with a wealth of different profiles and skills, Air Liquide’s Board of Directors is a key strength for the Group’s long-term performance. A performance which brings value to all our shareholders. The trust and loyalty of our close to 800,000 shareholders are key to Air Liquide's development. For more than a century, the Group has involved them in its growth, building long-term relationships based on transparency and proximity. We commit to maintaining ongoing dialogue with both individual and institutional shareholders through dedicated services, attractive remuneration and increased long-term investment value.

A responsible dialogue with our business stakeholders

In a constantly evolving and increasingly competitive environment, integrity, transparency and dialogue are the cornerstones of Air Liquide's responsibility to customers, patients and suppliers. The Principles of Action defined by the Group govern the actions of all our employees in the management of business. We also go one step further by introducing an assessment of our sustainability development approach in the customer satisfaction surveys. As part of our procurement policy, we are also monitoring the compliance of our suppliers in terms of responsibility.

Improving customer experience, from listening to actionThe Group’s ambition to provide a seamless customer experience requires listening to customers’ needs, providing a diversified and customized offering and an excellent quality of service. To further customer engagement, Air Liquide is working on the rationalization and simplification of its processes to continuously improve the level of its service, focusing on the reliability of its equipment and deliveries and thus the overall efficiency of its supply chain. Since 2017, we have collected 280,000 customer / patient feedback.

In particular, the Air Liquide Foundation acts for the advancement of science, through support to fundamental medical and environmental research. The Air Liquide Foundation also contributes to the development of communities through local initiatives and its work on professional integration in technical fields. In doing so, we help make a positive impact on local communities where we operate.
