Air Liquide participates in the battle against climate change


This year, from December 7 through December 18, a total of 192 countries will be sending representatives to the Copenhagen Summit in Denmark. The aim of COP 15, the United Nations’ international conference, is to come to a global agreement on energy and climate. Air Liquide develops the technologies that will participate in the fight against global warming.

The Copenhagen conference aims to lead to a global agreement on energy and climate that will take over from the Kyoto Protocol as of 2013, in the interest of containing the average increase in temperatures to below 2°C.

One of the major priorities of the conference is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions for all of the stakeholders, which include both emerging and industrialized nations and economies. The conference will also tackle the issue of adapting to the impacts of climate change, technology transfers and the implementation of mechanisms for financing these initiatives.

All of these issues are of critical importance for the future of our planet and world citizens.

Air Liquide participates in the fight against climate change by developing the innovative technologies that contribute to achieving reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, such as the capture and storage of CO2, and supplies the hydrogen that enables the production of cleaner fuels. The Group is also developing clean alternative energies, such as photovoltaic, second generation biofuels and hydrogen and fuel cells.

Energy and the Environment are part of the five growth drivers of Air Liquide, which invests more than 60% of its R&D budget in solutions aiming to preserve the environment and life.

In Copenhagen, Air Liquide will be present at the Bright Green exhibition on December 12 and 13 (Stand 58 – Energy Zone).
