Linde develops solutions that both increase customer value and make a contribution to sustainable development. The company's technologies contribute to sustainable solutions for the challenges facing society, such as energy security, environmentally friendly mobility and demographic change.
We have clearly identified our growth markets of the future, with energy and the environment, the healthcare business and the emerging economies offering the greatest potential. Linde's business strategy aligns with these three megatrends – all of which are highly relevant to sustainable development, in regard to both the business and society.
|Energy and the environment|
Climate change calls for global efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Our environmental and energy-efficient technologies – summarised under the Clean Technology by Linde umbrella – support this aim.
Longer life expectancy and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases are creating new challenges for hospitals, doctors and nursing staff alike: they have to combat the mounting cost pressure without compromising patient care. The Linde Group's healthcare business makes a contribution.
Linde is particularly well placed in the emerging economies – those markets that are currently showing marked economic momentum. Here, too, our business activities and technologies are helping to make economic growth sustainable.
