For the fourth consecutive year, Linde has been recognised as a leader in gender equality by Bloomberg.

The industrial gas giant today (4th March) confirmed that is has been selected for inclusion in the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which tracks the financial performance of companies Bloomberg considers to be most committed to gender equality.

Members of the index are selected based on a rigorous assessment of their disclosure and performance scores in 74 metrics across five key areas: leadership & talent pipeline; equal pay; inclusive culture; policies and brand.

Linde has been included in the index since its launch in 2018, initially as Praxair.

Commenting on the recognition, Vanessa Abrahams-John, Chief Diversity Officer for Linde, said, “The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed inequalities in our society, including for women in the workplace.”

“Linde’s steadfast commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion is reflected in its continued inclusion in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. We are proud to be recognized as we strive to meet Linde’s target of 30% professional females by 2030.”
