Linde (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN) has been awarded a Silver Class distinction in The Sustainability Yearbook 2020, published by S&P Global in collaboration with RobecoSAM. Linde scored among the highest in the global chemicals sector. The Sustainability Yearbook is the world's most comprehensive publication on corporate sustainability.
