To drive the necessary consistent, transparent and centralised approach to communicating with the investment community and other key stakeholders focused on sustainability around the world, Air Products has appointed Simon Moore as Vice-President of Investor Relations and Corporate Relations.
In his expanded role, Moore (pictured left) will have global leadership responsibility for Air Products’ sustainability strategy and goals and will lead the company’s Sustainability Council.
“The world is focused on sustainability, and so are we,” said Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President and CEO at Air Products.
“The investment community is increasingly interested in the steps our company is taking to build a more sustainable future.”
“Having Simon lead this effort will further raise the profile of our activities and give greater insight to our many stakeholders who consider environmental, social and governance criteria when assessing public companies.”
In the investor relations area, Moore is responsible for building and maintaining relationships with investors and analysts through an ongoing dialogue about Air Products’ corporate, business and financial objectives and growth opportunities.
