Strategic integration of Corporate Responsibility

Messer's activities are geared to the global economy, the environment and society, as well as to changes in these areas. In relation to the economic and social environment, we act sustainably and responsibly. We are also measured against our own objectives, innovations and traditions.

Climate change is increasingly altering the global conditions for living and doing business together - with direct consequences for people and companies. Accordingly, goals have been and are being realigned and market-economy framework conditions, including regulatory ones, are being adapted. For us, this poses risks, but also opportunities: we support our customers in taking important steps toward climate neutrality through our gas supply and gas applications.

In a social context, we attach great importance to diversity within our international team. Messer respects and promotes diversity, because we are convinced that with different strengths and ideas, we can implement even better solutions.

Long-term thinking and action, social responsibility towards employees and society as well as sustainable success - these are our central characteristics and at the same time our strengths as the world's largest privately owned industrial gases specialist.


The Executive Board of Messer as of November 16, 2023.

The Management Board’s commitment to sustainability

As the world’s largest privately held company specializing in industrial, medical and specialty gases, we have clearly defined guidelines relative to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance), which are lived by everyone on our team. Our mission statement plays a key role here, combining our vision, our mission and our values. It also highlights the demands of our customers and our shared responsibility for the environment, people and progress.
