LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) has again been recognized as a corporate sustainability leader, ranking among the top 10 percent of companies in its industry as a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index 2013/2014, a gold standard benchmark for corporate sustainability.

In addition to the World Index, Air Products also is a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index, a sub-set of the World Index, which places it among the top 20 percent of companies in its industry in North America.
