Responsibility for sustainability

The Executive Board of Linde AG makes decisions about the key issues relating to sustainable development. In 2016, those decisions included setting a more specific transport safety target and adopting a new safety strategy. Experts from within the Group advise on key strategic elements of sustainability and prepare decision papers for the Executive Board.

Our departments and business units implement the guidelines and devise tailor-made measures for different sectors and regions. The Corporate Responsibility department coordinates the implementation of initiatives in consultation with the departments and those employees in the regions responsible for the topics. It is also the key point of contact for stakeholders on sustainability issues.
