At Linde, our suppliers are integral members of our team and key stakeholders in our business. Linde recognizes that our suppliers’ performance can have a direct impact on our performance.
Responsible Care® and as such Linde will strive to institute Responsible Care® practices with all suppliers. The Linde Supply Management process is part of our integrated management system and is based on continual improvement cycle. This process enables Linde to identify and select world-class suppliers and provide our suppliers with opportunity for improvement via regular feedback.
All Linde suppliers are encouraged to become members in the ACC Responsible Care® Partnership Program, a partnership which extends the Responsible Care® ethic beyond manufacturers to customers, shippers and suppliers. Non traditional suppliers such as consultants, professional services and law practices are encouraged to become Friends of Responsible Care®.
