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 and Energy conducted a limited assurance review of the Air Products’ 2014 Scope 1, Scope 2, and selected elements of 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 of the representation of the inventory data.

In 2014, our overall greenhouse gas emissions increased from the prior year due to new facility start-ups, as well as production increases at facilities that opened in 2013.
