Message from Chairman, President and CEO

Our world is confronted with incomparable challenges, including the global threat of climate change. There is much talk about the energy transition, but only companies and countries taking real action through real investment in real projects will make a meaningful difference. At Air Products, I am proud that our more than 20,000 worldwide employees are taking real action, developing and executing first-mover projects providing real sustainability benefits. In doing so, they are living our higher purpose as a company and bringing lower-carbon forms of energy to the world.

Diversity in Professional and Managerial Roles graphic

Creating a Diverse Workforce

We will not rest on our success. After achieving a publicly-stated goal for U.S. minority representation in professional and managerial roles four years ahead of schedule, Air Products has moved the goal line. 

In October 2020, we announced a goal to achieve at least 20 percent minority representation from a 17 percent base level in our U.S. professional and managerial population by 2025. Having already reached this objective in 2021, Air Products set a new, ambitious goal to achieve 30 percent U.S. minority representation in these roles by 2025. This is yet another measurable, transparent step toward achieving our objective of becoming the most diverse industrial gas company in the world.  

Air Products has a broad operating scope and growing cultural landscape of more than 20,000 employees in over 50 countries. We are pleased with what we have accomplished and are excited to expand and grow our efforts. We will continue to report progress towards these goals and post future EEO-1 reports annually within sixty days following submittal of such report to the EEOC.

EEO-1 Report

Sustainability is at the heart of our business and our growth.

At Air Products, Sustainability is a core value; it’s at the heart of what we have done as a business for over 80 years. By their very nature, industrial gases and our applications help customers reduce their energy consumption, lower emissions, and boost productivity. We also are playing a lead role in helping to address significant energy and environmental challenges through gasification, carbon capture and hydrogen for mobility solutions. Ultimately, we are driven by an important ambition: working together to innovate solutions to some of the world’s most pressing energy and environmental challenges.
