Global gas company Linde has been recognised by environmental non-profit organisation CDP for its efforts to tackle water security.

On a scale of ‘A’ being the highest, ’D’ the lowest, Linde is one of a select few to achieve the top score, as well as receiving an ’A-’ for its approach to climate change. 

CDP, which represents over $110tn in assets to measure companies’ risks and opportunities on climate change, water security and deforestation, assessed nearly 12,000 companies using this a comprehensive analysis method which takes into account disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks. 

Tamara Brown, Vice President Sustainability at Linde, called responsible management of water a ‘key element’ of Linde’s sustainability strategy, adding, “We are honoured to be recognised as one of few companies leading the way in stewardship, transparency and impact. 

The award after Linde’s recent announcement of its new greenhouse gas emissions goals, which includes a target of a 35% reduction in absolute emissions by 2035 and climate neutrality by 2050.
