The Air Liquide Foundation is subject to an internal audit and an external audit.
Every year, the annual financial statements of the Air Liquide Foundation are audited by the Statutory Auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Their audit mission is carried out in compliance with the rules of independence set out in the French Commercial Code and the Code of Ethics of the Statutory Auditors.
