In addition to audits carried out within the framework of ISO certification, we also assess our consumption of natural resources. We developed software, for instance, to optimise transport routes and reduce the number of kilometres our vehicles travel each year. Every site in The Linde Group reports its environmental performance. This information is consolidated and published in our Annual Report.
We also perform HSE audits and HACCP surveys as well as transport and contractor audits every year at all of our sites. We use the results of these checks to create action plans.
