Accountability for sustainable development

At Linde, the Corporate Responsibility Council makes decisions about the key sustainability topics. The members of this committee are the Chief Executive Officer and another member of the Executive Board, together with the heads of the Group’s corporate and support functions: Corporate Communications & Investor Relations, Group Human Resources, Group Legal & Compliance, Corporate Internal Audit and HSE. The Council regularly discusses the achievement of targets and identifies focus areas for sustainability management. Our divisions and business units implement sustainability practices and develop measures specifically tailored to their functions and regions. The Corporate Responsibility department coordinates the execution of sustainability initiatives with experts in the relevant departments and with those responsible for corporate responsibility topics in the regions. Furthermore, the Corporate Responsibility department is the main point of contact for stakeholders.

In 2014, the Corporate Responsibility Council advised among others on customer requirements in relation to sustainability and the introduction of a global safety target for the Group.
