The Carbon Disclosure Project, which holds the largest database of corporate climate change information in the world, has recognized Air Products' approach to climate change disclosure and named the company to its Leadership Index for 2009.

Of the S&P500, only the top 50 companies' responses to the CDP's questionnaire are included in its Leadership Index, which highlights the "constituent companies displaying the most professional approach to corporate governance in climate change disclosure practices." Companies were scored based on their responses to the CDP's questions that ranged from greenhouse gas emissions and reduction targets, to risks and opportunities associated with climate change.
