Understanding Our Footprint

Direct and Indirect Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Management of climate change represents a significant potential for business growth. Air Products is also focused on managing its climate risks.

As a solution provider, our strategy for responding to climate change is straightforward—identify opportunities where our core technology and product strengths bring cost-effective solutions that enable our customers to reduce their overall supply-chain environmental impact, while using innovation and efficiency improvements to reduce GHG emissions and the potential cost impacts of a carbon-constrained energy supply on our operations. This approach is reflected in our Greenhouse Gases Policy Statement.

wsp environment and energy
WSP Environment & Energy (WSP) conducted a limited assurance review of our 2015 Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 greenhouse gas inventory in accordance with ISO 14064-3. WSP issued an Assurance Statement, attesting to Air Products’ adherence to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the absence of any material inaccuracy in the representation of the inventory data.

2015 greenhouse gas emissions goal met

We achieved most of our 2015 environmental sustainability goals and have established new goals for 2020 to drive our performance.

Understanding Our Footprint

For calendar 2015:

Direct emissions (Scope 1) for CY2015 were 3% lower than the previous year due in large part to outages at several large facilities.

2015 direct emissions

Indirect emissions (Scope 2) for CY2015 were 28% higher than the previous year due to the start-up of new facilities and production increases, particularly in Asia.

2015 indirect emissions
