We have a SHEQ vision: ‘At The Linde Group, we do not want to harm people or the environment.’ This vision guides our actions in all issues relating to SHEQ and inspires us to make the right decisions, take the appropriate measures and behave in a responsible manner. It ensures that at Linde, people always come first.
Not harming the environment means more than just adhering to legal guidelines and internal corporate standards. It involves actively doing everything possible to mitigate any ecological damage resulting from our business activities. That is why Linde, as a company, is committed to reducing its carbon footprint by improving efficiency and using resources in a responsible manner.
Our “100% SHEQ” logo makes our commitment more tangible and helps take our SHEQ message to all our employees across the globe.
