Linde has received the top rating from ISS Environment QualityScore in sustainability disclosure practices, the industrial gas giant confirmed today (4th May).

ISS QualityScore helps investors monitor the environmental risks a company. Further to that, it measures the depth and extent of company disclosure relative to its industry group.

Such assessment is designed to indicate a company’s understanding and preparedness to address environmental risks. 

“Sustainability underscores everything we do at Linde,” said Todd Skare, Chief Technology and Sustainability Officer, Linde.

“We have set ambitious targets for our own operations while also working with our customers to reduce their emissions through our applications and technologies. We are committed to the highest standards of transparency and disclosure and are pleased to receive this recognition from ISS.”

The ISS methodology is informed by disclosure standards and frameworks including the Global Reporting Initiative, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
