Sustainable Development & Climate Change Position Statement
Praxair helps customers worldwide improve their environmental performance and reduce their carbon footprint. At the same time, we are committed to minimizing our own environmental resource intensity, including for energy, water and waste. We manage performance with a sustainable development management system and range of targets that are applicable to all global operations and Praxair's value chain.
Praxair's Sustainable Development targets were developed in reference to Praxair priorities and with due consideration of priorities defined by key external groups. We uphold Praxair’s global standards internally and across our value chain. We maintain due diligence processes to reduce potential risks from compliance or environmental violations in prospective acquisitions and joint ventures. Praxair's SVP, a member of Praxair’s executive leadership team, is the senior executive responsible for this area.
