Air Products has been awarded with the ‘Best Social Responsibility Brand Award 2016’ at the China Charity Festival for the second consecutive year.

The award signifies the sustainability performance and continued social responsibility contributions of the Tier One company.

According to its 2016 Sustainability Report, the US industrial gas giant exceeded nearly all of its goals for 2015, with 55% of its revenue generated from sustainable offerings that improve energy efficiency, lower emissions and meet societal needs.

Air Products has been present in the Chinese industrial gases market for nearly 30 years. Its LIN (liquid nitrogen) Ambassador Programme initiative demonstrates the application of gas science in daily life to local schools and communities in the North Pacific rim country through various experiments.
