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.
In line with its sustainable development approach, Air Liquide has chosen to focus its Foundation’s action on three areas in which the Group, through its activities and presence throughout the world, has clear legitimacy: the Environment, Healthcare/Respiration and Micro-Initiatives linked to local development.
