- Measuring sustainability
Linde regularly reviews which sustainability topics are of particular relevance to the business activities of the Group. In the process, a variety of sources are considered, including:
- Surveys among employees and customers
- Internal workshops with specialists and strategy experts
- Input from interdisciplinary working groups
- Insights from Group Risk Management on environmental and social risks
- Insights from stakeholder dialogues (e.g. enquiries, investor talks, projects with customers, specialist conferences, working groups in associations and sustainability networks)
- Guidelines on international standards and recommendations on sustainability management and sustainability reporting
- Analysis of sustainability issues in traditional and social media
- Feedback from the Linde Integrity Line
With the so-called materiality analysis, we rate each issue by weighing its relevance for stakeholders against the impact on our business performance. This overview provides a basis for us to identify and respond to risks and opportunities related to sustainability.
An overview of our material topics can be found in our current Corporate Responsibility Report.
