Praxair Inc. has again demonstrated that it’s not just its logo that’s green, as Newsweek ranked the company at 30th in the US 500 and 52nd in the Global 500 Newsweek Green Rankings.
Praxair was ranked No. 3 in the Global 500 worldwide Materials sector.
Newsweek Green Rankings is one of the world’s foremost corporate sustainability and environmental rankings, comprehensively assessing the performance of the largest publicly traded companies in the US and around the world.
This is the fifth time Praxair was cited by Newsweek as a Top Green Company, being recognised each year the study has been published.
“We are pleased to once again be recognised for our employees’ commitment to making our planet more productive,” said Steve Angel, Praxair Chairman and CEO. “Environmental and social responsibility are not just slogans at Praxair; they are core values that we take very seriously and have embedded in our culture over many years.”
“Our employees around the world are focused on reducing energy consumption and driving environmental improvements across Praxair as well as delivering environmental and social benefits to our customers, our communities and our planet.”
Praxair was recently named in CR Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, and is also the only US chemical company selected for 11 consecutive years to the prestigious Dow Jones World Sustainability Index. The company was listed in the Global Carbon Disclosure Index for the 6th consecutive year in 2013, one of only four companies in the world to have this distinction.
