Linde AG has been listed again in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. The analysts at RobecoSAM have thereby acknowledged the continuous improvement in the sustainability performance of the technology group.

RobecoSAM is an independent service-provider which specialises in evaluating sustainable investment decisions. This year, RobecoSAM commended Linde particularly for its activities in the areas of compliance, environmental management systems, risk management and crisis management.

'Our business model focuses specifically on sustainability and global megatrends. We are delighted that this strategy has also been recognised by independent experts,' said Professor Dr Wolfgang Reitzle, Chief Executive Officer of Linde AG. '

When developing and evolving our technologies, we ask ourselves how we can contribute to environmental protection and even more efficient use of valuable natural resources - looking at opportunities both within our company and with our customers.'

RobecoSAM evaluates the sustainability practices of the 2,500 largest companies in the world listed on the Dow Jones Global Index. Only the top-performing 10 percent of those companies are included in the internationally renowned Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.

The Linde Group is a world leading gases and engineering company with around 62,000 employees in more than 100 countries worldwide. In the 2012 financial year, Linde generated revenue of EUR 15.280 bn. The strategy of the Group is geared towards long-term profitable growth and focuses on the expansion of its international business with forward-looking products and services.

Linde acts responsibly towards its shareholders, business partners, employees, society and the environment - in every one of its business areas, regions and locations across the globe. Linde is committed to technologies and products that unite the goals of customer value and sustainable development.
