Global CSR Reach (2020)
At SABIC, we know our actions today and our vision for tomorrow play a big part in making the world a better place – for our employees, our stakeholders, and the communities in which we work. We invest in future generations through a range of global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives which play a key role in making life better for millions of people every day. This year, we faced a new challenge with COVID-19, and joined hands with government authorities and NGOs to help overcome the pandemic worldwide.
Wherever we operate, we look to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with all of our stakeholders, with a sustainable approach that delivers lasting value, and innovative programs to meet community needs.
In 2020, we invested over US$ 39.6 million in 274 Global CSR programs, including more than 204 programs to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, reaching around 35 million people in 34 countries.
We were proud this year to receive the Excellence Award for Sustainability in the Innovation and Sustainability 2020 Excellence Awards and Forum for Corporate Social Responsibility, hosted by China’s Shanghai Daily, in recognition of our dedication to sustainable development and poverty alleviation. We were also recognized with the Community Chest's Community Spirit Gold Award in Singapore for our efforts in supporting vulnerable families affected by the pandemic.
