Air Products (NYSE:APD) today announced the release of its 2010 Sustainability Report, which is available at  

For the first time, the company’s Report was prepared using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 guidelines, a voluntary framework used by organizations worldwide to measure and report their economic, environmental and social performance.

“By adopting the GRI framework in our reporting this year, our goal is to provide the information of most significance to our stakeholders so they can more easily locate and assess our sustainability impacts, risks and opportunities,” noted Pat Loughlin, vice president, Environment Health Safety and Quality and chair of Air Products’ Sustainability Council.

Presented in electronic format through an interactive PDF and clickable GRI Index, the Report speaks to the company’s priorities around sustainability and key accomplishments and challenges, including updates on performance against emissions, energy, waste and water targets; employee safety, diversity and inclusion, and training initiatives; stakeholder engagement, including community involvement and customer relationships; and more.

The Report begins with Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer John McGlade’s message to stakeholders, which addresses the company’s sustainability value proposition and improvement strategies.

“As we prepare to mark the 70th anniversary of Air Products this year, global macro trends driven by societal demands, legislative changes and demographic shifts are providing even more opportunities to apply our solutions to pressing energy, environmental and emerging market needs,” McGlade says. “As our potential growth opportunities have strengthened, so too has our commitment to drive continued improvements in our own sustainability performance.”
