Praxair, Inc. has been named to the new Climate A List by CDP, for actions taken to manage its own carbon footprint and that of its customers.
This is the ninth consecutive year that Praxair has been named to a CDP list or index.
CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, is an international, not-for-profit organisation providing a global system for companies and government organisations to measure, disclose, manage and share information on environmental performance.
Praxair is one of 193 global companies, accounting for 9% of corporations participating in CDP’s climate change programme, to be awarded a position on the list. Additionally, Praxair is the only industrial gas company included on the Climate A List.
Praxair’s Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer Dr. Riva Krut, said, “This recognition reinforces the importance of efforts our employees make each and every day to support Praxair’s mission of making our planet more productive.”
“Through our atmospheric and process gases, and technology, Praxair has developed a wide variety of applications that help our customers improve manufacturing productivity and efficiency and solve global challenges. These include gases that help disinfect water to make it drinkable and gases that provide clean air in our cities through desulfurising diesel and gasoline fuel in our trucks and cars.” Krut added.
In 2015, Praxair implemented global projects that, among other benefits, enabled customers or their end users to avoid more than two times the GHG emissions than were emitted in all of Praxair’s operations. Additionally, from 2010, the company achieved a cumulative $260 million savings in energy efficiency, including avoiding 1.4 million MWh electricity and 2.1 million MT CO2e, which contributed directly to Praxair’s operating results.
