Air Products was recently awarded the ‘Best Social Responsibility Brand Award 2015’ at the 5th China Charity Festival, held in Beijing.
The award signifies the corporate citizenship and social responsibility of the Tier One company. Some 50 other leading companies, including Dow Chemical, Pfizer and Starbucks, were also honoured at the ceremony.
Air Products has been present in the China industrial gases market for nearly 30 years. Some of its initiatives include the LIN (liquid nitrogen) Ambassador Programme, which demonstrates the application of gas science in daily life to local schools and communities through various experiments.
It was also involved in the Shenzhen landslide in December 2015, aiding with rescue efforts through its expertise in safety and gas cylinder transformation.
Saw Choon Seong, China President of Industrial Gases at Air Products, outlined, “Sustainability is at the core of Air Products’ business strategies, and this award is another testimonial of our longstanding commitment to corporate social responsibility. We will continue to create more value for local communities and customers through our sustainable offerings, technologies and safety expertise.”
Candidates and their projects nominated for the China Charity Festival are evaluated for their social benefits, such as sustainability, creativity, adaptability and credibility.
Air Products has been awarded with the ‘Best Social Responsibility Brand Award 2016’ at the China Charity Festival for the second consecutive year.
Air Products has unveiled plans to build a new plant and all the associated infrastructure in the Pukou Economic Development Zone (PKEDZ) in Nanjing, Eastern China, further solidifying itself as a leading player in China’s chemical sector.
Air Products was the only industrial gas company to be named as an Outstanding Service Provider to China Chemical Parks in a ceremony at the 2016 China Chemical Industry and Chemical Park Forum.
