The secret to turning our diversity into a competitive advantage is continuing to cultivate an inclusive environment where everyone can make a difference. Work in this area takes many forms, including business and regionally focused D&I leadership teams, leadership and employee training, equitable policies, mentoring programs, networking and professional development, and vibrant employee resource groups.

A few examples:

The Inclusion Network brings employees from across our company together to work collaboratively to foster an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and reach their full potential. Comprised of leaders from our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) D&I, Human Resources, and executive leadership, the Inclusion Network aims to help attract and retain talent, raise cultural awareness and competence, develop critical skills and competencies, build supportive networks and contribute to the company's overall diversity and inclusion objectives. Participants have access to a variety of programming and development opportunities, including workshops and networking events with colleagues and leaders from across the company.

Employee Resource Groups work collaboratively with the Inclusion Network and in partnership with the company to attract and retain diverse talent. The focus for these groups is creating a welcoming and supportive environment, enhancing professional and personal development, and supporting an inclusive workplace.

Our current groups include:

4AP, All Asian Americans at Air Products

BERG, Black Employee Resource Group

EDGE, Ethnically Diverse Gulf Employees

Enable, ability-focused resource group

HOLA, Hispanic Organization of Latinos and Amigos

Spectrum, an LGBT resource group

Social impact

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. When it comes to sustainability, companies need to be transparent about their impacts on people and the environment, what they’re doing to minimize those impacts, and how their business helps others do the same. The sustainability indexes you see here are external validation that we’re making progress and we’re sharing our results with the world.

Grow responsibly through sustainability driven opportunities that benefit our customers and our world. We help customers improve their sustainability performance through higher productivity, better quality products, reduced energy use, and lower emissions.

Conserve resources and reduce environmental footprints through cost-effective improvements. We set aggressive environmental performance goals for greenhouse gases, energy, water, and our fleet, and we measure progress to continually improve our own operations.

Care for our employees, customers and communities—protecting our license to operate and grow. We are building a culture of safety, simplicity, speed, and self-confidence. Our goal is zero accidents and zero incidents. We are committed to developing our people, supporting our communities, engaging suppliers and upholding our integrity.

As colleagues, we are driven to succeed by collaborating on work that is challenging and makes a difference.
