Air Products has today announced a new sustainability goal to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions intensity by one-third by the year 2030 from a 2015 baseline, as it closes in on successfully attaining a series of 2020 sustainability goals.
The “Third by ‘30” carbon intensity reduction goal is aligned with Air Products’ higher purpose, with employees across the globe driven to work together and innovate solutions to significant energy and environmental challenges.
Seifi Ghasemi, Air Products’ Chairman, President and CEO, said, “Sustainability is at the heart of what Air Products has done as a business for the past 80 years. Our industrial gases, technologies and applications enable customers around the world to reduce their energy use, lower emissions and increase productivity.”
“Air Products is also playing a lead role in helping to address significant energy and environmental challenges through gasification, carbo capture and hydrogen for mobility solutions, including through projects like NEOM – the world’s largest carbon-free and truly transformative hydrogen project.”
In addition to providing products that allowed Air Products’ customers to avoid 69 million metric tonnes of carbon emissions in 2019, the company also achieved, and in several cases exceeded, previous 2020 goals from a 2015 baseline.
