Policies & Position Statements


Our governing policies & position statements

Praxair is now a Linde company. Linde Corporate policies are provided on the Linde website and apply to Linde and all Linde companies. This includes its Code of Business Integrity and its global Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Policy. Additional corporate policies will be issued in the coming period. Until that time, Praxair policies still apply. To the extent of any conflict between a Praxair policy and a revised Linde corporate policy, the new corporate policy supersedes the Praxair policy.

Employees or third parties who are concerned about potential non-compliances with this or any other corporate policy are invited to report their concerns to management or to our anonymous 3rd party Integrity Hotline. We report annually on the number of hotline reports received each year.

Praxair South America (White Martins) is a signatory of the Women's Empowerment Principles.
