Air Products’ business strategy is to provide sustainable solutions to customers and help them achieve their objectives. We are driven by an important ambition: to innovate alongside our customers and help them be more sustainable. We aim to produce products that improve energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and address societal needs such as health, safety and improving quality of life. In 2021, 56% of revenues were derived from sustainable offerings.
We are committed to enabling our customers to enhance their sustainability. We track our progress through customer avoided CO₂ emissions that our customers and their customers would otherwise emit if not for the products we produce and supply. In 2021, we made progress toward our goal of annually increasing avoided CO₂ emissions, with total avoided emissions increasing from 72 to 82 million metric tons of CO₂e avoided. This is approximately equivalent to the emissions from almost 18 millions cars and more than three times our own direct and indirect CO₂e emissions.
