Howden is a leading global provider of mission critical air and gas handling solutions that its customers’ vital processes depend on. Howden helps its customers to increase their environmental and operational efficiencies and to decarbonise their operations and is advancing a more sustainable future for everyone.

Howden’s purpose is to enable its customers’ vital processes which advance a more sustainable world. Sustainability is deeply rooted in Howden’s business and is core to the brand. James Howden founded Howden in 1854 as a marine engineering business, and it was his early inventions that enabled the steam ships of his era to reduce their energy consumption by nearly 50%.

Howden believes in making a difference by building a positive and enduring legacy in the communities in which its colleagues live and work. In 2021, Howden introduced its Bright Futures programme which helps disadvantaged and under-represented people in local communities realise their full potential and help build a more sustainable future for all. Since the programme launched, 80% of Howden’s major sites around the world have actively developed programmes and 11% of Howden colleagues are already involved in volunteering in these local community activities.
