For the fourth consecutive year, Air Products has been recognised on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies list for its sustainability and corporate responsibility efforts.
The industrial gas giant on Tuesday (22nd Feb) unveiled that it had ranked 38th on the list, although it stated there is more work to be done when it comes to building a more sustainable future.
Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President and CEO at Air Products, said, “Sustainability is our growth strategy at Air Products. It is part of our higher purpose to collaborate and innovate solutions to the world’s most significant energy and environmental challenges.”
“We are proud to again be recognised for our sustainability efforts, but know there is more work to be done. Air Products will continue to play a leading role in building a more sustainable future through clean energy solutions, such as hydrogen for mobility and carbon capture.”
For the annual ranking, Barron’s teamed up with Calvert Research Management, which analysed the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies by market value and then ranked each by how it performed for the five constituencies of: shareholders, employees, customers, community and the planet.
In addition to being recognised on the Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies list, Air Products has been recently included in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook and earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index.
