Our planet is changing at an alarming rate, and we're already feeling the impacts. As climate change and other environmental issues take center stage and affect all areas of our lives, companies are dealing with increased pressure from regulators, investors, and communities to reduce their carbon footprint. At Linde, we continuously live our mission of making our world more productive. Through our high-quality solutions, technologies, and services, we provide a competitive advantage to our clients, helping them improve their productivity, energy efficiency, and environmental performance.
Sustainability, as one of our principal values, inspired our latest product line: Linde Green.
Reducing CO2 Footprint: 99% Cleaner Oxygen and Nitrogen*
The Linde Green product offer includes air gases – Nitrogen and Oxygen, produced with 100% renewable energy sources. This production approach results in a significantly lower CO2 footprint compared to the conventional production process. And when we say significant, we mean up to 99% less carbon emission.*
Embracing this path, Linde is one of the first companies to introduce air gases with a lower CO2 footprint and enables, to reduce the CO2 footprint through the consumption of our customers. How? Upon each purchase of Linde Green gases, we will provide you with a Green Certificate, stating the exact carbon footprint reduction achieved using our green products.*
Rethinking our production process
To help our customers improve their environmental performance by reducing the carbon footprint of Oxygen and Nitrogen, Linde is continually inventing new applications and more efficient ways of air separation. The same happened with Linde Green, where we embraced a brand-new production approach.
To produce Linde Green products, we use exclusively renewable energy sources such as solar, wind power, geothermal, biomass, and small hydroelectric plants, all of which are less harmful to the environment than fossil fuels. And the result? Linde Green Oxygen and Nitrogen bring a significant reduction of CO2 emission compared to the use of conventional electricity.*
TUV Süd: Partnering Our Green Approach
Every step of our production and the commercial process has been examined and accredited by TÜV SÜD, the well-known global auditing and certification service provider. As a universally recognized symbol of safety, security and sustainability, TÜV SÜD is partnering our green approach, ensuring that our product offer complies with their standard “Accounting EE”.
TÜV SÜD is our trusted partner of choice. Together, we have a proven track record of large-scale projects and innovation fields, such as hydrogen technology. For the Linde Green product line, they offer both certifications of energy trading from renewable sources and accounting greenhouse gas emissions for the supply of electricity.
How much CO2 will be reduced by using renewable energy?*
CO2 reduction from 100 tons of Linde Green Oxygen... **
... equals to greenhouse gas emissions from 10 passenger vehicles driven for one year.**
CO2 reduction from 100 tons of Linde Green Oxygen...**
... equals the carbon sequestered by 827 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.**
By offering a green air gas portfolio, we want to become the green supplier of choice and be in close partnership with our customers on the way to achieving the sustainability goals. Together, we will make the world more productive and green.
In a Nutshell
All you need to know about Linde Green
Old Product - New Production Approach
Linde Green products offer the same benefits as conventional Oxygen and Nitrogen. The only thing that differs is the production approach.
100% Renewable Energy Sources
In the production of Linde Green, we use solely renewable energy, such as solar, wind power, geothermal, biomass, and small hydroelectric plants.
99% Less Carbon Emission
Linde Green Oxygen and Nitrogen have significantly lower level of CO2 emission, compared to the conventionally produced gases - 99% lower.
Proof of CO2 Reduction
Each Linde Green customer will receive a monthly certificate about the accounting-wise CO2 reduction, based on the monthly consumption of Green Oxygen or Nitrogen.*
Certified Production Process
Every step of our production and commercial process has been certified by TÜV SÜD and complies to their standard “Accounting EE”.
* Our green products are produced with energy from 100% renewable sources, reducing the emission of CO2 equivalents accounting-wise by shown amounts. The stated CO2 reduction compares to a production using conventional electrical energy.
