Linde CryoPlants Ltd work to key Group performance indicators (KPIs) and targets that help us track our economic, ecological and social performance. They are used to measure our progress and to identify scope for improvement. Internationally recognised standards are taken into consideration for the selection and publishing of our non-financial data.

Our goals are to meet or exceed our sustainability targets and where possible, set new industry benchmarks.  We cover key sustainability issues for our company as part of our corporate responsibility reporting activities. These include recommendations by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), an independent organisation that publishes guidelines on sustainability reporting.

Linde has identified energy and the environment, the healthcare business and emerging economies as the drivers offering the biggest potential. Our business strategy aligns with these three megatrends – all of them having a high relevance for sustainable development.

If possible, we also state in figures the value of our products with regard to sustainability. Life-cycle analyses are one such example. In customer projects, we analyse and calculate possibilities to save energy and reduce the environmental footprint.
