SABIC released its 2013 Sustainability Report, entitled "Creating lasting value," reflecting the company’s commitment to continuously create more sustainable business processes and more value for its stakeholders.
The report shares the latest information on the company’s progress on various dimensions of sustainability value creation. It highlights performance in creating economic value, protecting natural capital, developing human capital, and building social and community relationships.
Prince Saud bin Abdullah bin Thenayan Al-Saud, chairman of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and chairman of SABIC, said: “This is our third report and it reflects the company’s ongoing journey toward achieving the highest level of sustainable performance possible. Our mission is to become more efficient in reducing our consumption of finite materials and our environmental footprint while, at the same time, aggressively pursuing our strategy of enabling others to operate in a more sustainable manner through our innovative product portfolios.”
Mohamed Al-Mady, SABIC vice chairman and CEO, said the sustainability process was a never ending process for SABIC. “We have moved forward in many areas, but we still have much to do. We will continue to be transparent in providing a yearly review of our actions, comparing our results against stated goals and utilizing globally accepted criteria to provide uniform measurement of our performance. Our commitment to sustainability is shared across all divisions of the company — it is focused on making a positive impact at every stage of the product life cycle. Our responsibility starts with supply chain decisions and continues through our production processes, distribution, customer applications and product end-of-life.”
On the sustainable role played by SABIC products, Al-Mady said: “We are constantly working on finding ways to innovate across the lifecycle. We look at human capital development and organizational relationship development as high priority areas for improvement in every business function.”
