We work closely with community partners including not-for-profit organizations, emergency responders, elected officials, education, business and community leaders in our operating communities around the world to identify opportunities to make a positive impact.
In 2016, Air Products employees were engaged with over 165 charitable organizations, including the United Way. Air Products' 2016 United Way workplace campaign raised over $1 million, and we matched each employee donation on a one-to-one basis. Air Products worked with United Way to ensure all contributions stayed in the communties where our employees live and work, and that those dollars are designated to agencies in need.
Also in 2016, Air Products increased our relationship with United Way Worldwide as we continue to advance giving and involvement with charities around the world.
Our commitment to corporate citizenship is about working to improve the quality of life in our operating communities in partnership with local organizations. Our support priorities are in education, health and human services, community and economic development, arts and culture, and environment and safety.
