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 2020, 57% of revenues were derived from sustainable offerings, exceeding our goal of 50%.
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 2020, we enabled 72 million metric tons of CO₂e to be avoided, which is approximately equivalent to the emissions from 16 million cars and three times our own direct and indirect CO₂ emissions.
In 2020, we set a new goal to annually increase the total CO₂ emissions avoided by our customers and their customers.
