As a result of the first-time application of the revised accounting standards, the sites in the scope of our reporting changed in the 2013 financial year. Accordingly, the key financial, environmental and employee KPIs for 2012 were adjusted retrospectively in the year 2013. In addition, the KPIs for employees, occupational health and safety and environmental protection for the year 2012 were retrospectively adjusted to account for the effects of the acquisition of the US homecare company Lincare.

EBIT adjusted for amortisation of intangible assets and depreciation of tangible assets

3

Other energy sources include for example thermal energy, heating oil, biofuel energy, propane, butane and diesel fuel. In 2014, Linde sold a plant in Southern Europe which previously consumed mainly other energy sources. Indicators for this plant are no longer included in the reported figure. The increased consumption of other energies in 2011 resulted from the inclusion of additional other energy sources (e.g. naphtha and methanol) into the indicator scope.

4

Increased water use from 2012 on is mainly due to use of sea water and once-through water at sites in Mexico, China and the United Arab Emirates.

5

Water consumption relates to drinking water and industrial water used. Once-through water is drawn from a natural or other sources, solely warmed and ultimately piped back to the original source at a temperature not posing any risk to the surrounding ecosystem.

6

The definition of waste water was changed in 2014. Process water which was discharged without further treatment into natural sources is no longer included in the reported indicator.

7

Includes greenhouse gases specified in the Kyoto Protocol: methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (laughing gas, N2O), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). In 2014, Linde has refined the determination method of the indicator for these GHGs to include additional emitters and emission sources. The reported figure for 2013 was recalculated based on this new method.

8

Since 2014, we also include the Radiative Forcing Index (RFI) to calculate emissions from business travel. Thereby, we take into account the higher impact of air travel on the greenhouse effect. Emissions for the year 2013 have been re-calculated accordingly.

9

In 2014, Linde has refined the determination method for emissions to the air. Where available, measurements were used for the new methodology. For production sites for which no measurements were available, we estimated the figures. Where possible, the reported figures for 2013 were recalculated based on these new methods. The determination method for VOC emissions could not be applied retroactively. Therefore, the values for this indicator are not comparable for the years 2013 and 2014.

10

An exceptional event in South America led to additional ammonia emissions of around146 tonnes.

11

In 2014, we have developed a methodology to determine emissions to water (COD, BOD, nitrates, phosphates) for the Linde Group. This methodology is based on measurements and extrapolations. There are significant inherent limitations in this methodology, however full measurement of emissions to water at all Linde sites is not economically viable. The reported numbers of water emission performance indicators of the Linde Group therefore serve as an approximation to our emissions.

12

The lower figure for waste in 2014 is mainly due to a reduction in construction waste.

13

Incineration waste is partly used for heat recovery.

14

Severe traffic incidents, e.g. with heavy effects on the health of the employees involved or with reportable emissions to the environment, as well as transport incidents leading to material costs above a defined threshold.

15

The figures disclosed relate to internal and external audits conducted at production sites worldwide.

16

Staff turnover rate relates to employees who left the Group voluntarily during the period under review.
