Together we overcome COVID-19
The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is continuing to change the world in unprecedented ways. At SABIC, we believe that the challenges of COVID-19 can only be overcome through collaboration.
Our utmost concern has focused on protecting people’s health and welfare, supplying our customers in the best possible way, supporting humanitarian efforts and proactively collaborating with global communities, governments and health authorities to maximize our collective impact.
Protecting our people
Health and safety is always the priority for SABIC and we relentlessly safeguard our people as they continue to work. Comprehensive precautionary measures were implemented early and remain in place.
Where possible, alternative methods of secure and reliable technologies ensure that we continue delivering products that meet our high standards and can engage effectively with our stakeholders. We have extended much support and resources to employees to help navigate these challenging times and enable them to contribute optimally while working remotely.
Supporting our customers
Globally, we established response teams who are working closely with our customers and stakeholders, taking every effort to ensure orders are fulfilled in a timely manner in line with national and local government guidance.
The resilience and strength of our operations and supply chain put us in a strong position to meet the challenges facing the global economy and market during the remainder of 2020.
Moreover, when needed, SABIC has rapidly supplied our customers with materials for the urgent production of frontline medical equipment.
Caring for our communities
We remain steadfast in our commitment to our stakeholders and communities. So far, our donations to help the global response to the pandemic have totaled more than USD 44 million. We have also committed to matching donations made by our employees to COVID-19 charities.
In the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas; our donations are providing materials that are high in demand to manufacture sanitizers, medical equipment, preventive products and supplies for frontline medical and healthcare workers. We are reviewing these efforts periodically and exploring other geographies and ways where we can contribute to make a positive and meaningful impact.
SABIC is actively supporting global, national and community responses, demonstrating our Chemistry that Matters™ in helping the world.
