Air Products Moves into Top 10 Rankings of Most Sustainable Companies for Social Factors by Barron’s

Media Contacts:

Air Products (NYSE:APD), a leading global industrial gases company, has again been named to Barron’s List of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies. Barron’s recently reranked its Top 100 listing based on social factors to create a second model portfolio. Based on those social factor based rankings, Air Products rose from 33rd to 10th.

“We are proud to again be recognized by Barron’s for our commitment to sustainability,” said Simon Moore, Air Products’ vice president Investor Relations, Corporate Relations and Sustainability. “At Air Products, sustainability is part of our higher purpose, and this recognition, which is focused on social factors, validates our overall efforts to collaborate with our partners, employees and communities to continue to build a more sustainable future.”

To determine its Top 100 Most Sustainable Companies, Barron’s works with Calvert Research and Management, an investment firm focused on responsible investing owned by Eaton Vance. Calvert Research and Management, which has approximately $20 billion of assets under management, invests in companies based on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria. The Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable List is based on 28 ESG categories covering 230 indicators. This year, Barron’s reranked the companies solely on societal factors across 13 categories such as how companies treat their employees, customers and communities. 

Being ranked in Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies in America is the latest recognition for Air Products’ sustainability and corporate responsibility efforts in 2020. Recently EcoVadis, a multinational CSR ratings agency, awarded Air Products a gold medal for its Corporate Social Responsibility performance for the third year in a row. Also, Air Products was named to 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for the ninth consecutive year and included in the Sustainability Yearbook 2020, published by S&P Global, one of the most comprehensive publications providing in-depth analysis on corporate responsibility performance. The Company was also included in the 2020 Carbon Clean 200 list.
