Allentown-based Air Products has again achieved a leadership position among the top 10 percent of companies in its industry as a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index 2014/2015, a gold standard benchmark for corporate sustainability performance.

Air Products also is a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index, which places it among the top 20 percent of companies in its industry in North America.

RobecoSAM and the S&P Dow Jones Indices evaluate the economic, environmental, social and governance practices of the largest 2,500 publicly traded companies annually. Based on an assessment of criteria that accounts for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends, companies best equipped to manage sustainability opportunities and risks are then selected for inclusion.

"We are honored that Air Products has been recognized for sustainability leadership, an important component in creating shareholder value," said Seifi Ghasemi, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Air Products. "We are committed to improving our own operations, supporting our communities, and enabling customers to produce more while using less."

In addition to the DJSI Indices, Air Products remains a component of other international sustainability indices and is recognized for its sustainability practices and achievements around the globe.
