Linde has been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the first time as a new company since the finalisation of the Linde AG and Praxair, Inc. merger.
This year Linde was evaluated as the 3rd highest company in the chemical sector and scored the highest among all European and North American companies.
Linde also achieved high sector scores in innovation management, materiality, risk and crisis management, environmental policy and management, product stewardship, water-related risks, eco-efficiency, labour practice as well as corporate citizenship and philanthropy.
“I am proud to see Linde ranked highly in this year’s Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,” said Steve Angel, Linde CEO.
“Sustainability is an integral part of our mission, vision and values and this recognition exemplifies our long-standing commitment to sustainability and the outstanding efforts of Linde’s global employees.
The DJSI is an internationally renowned sustainability share index that covers the top 10% of the 2,500 largest companies globally in the S&P Global Broad Market Index.
