SABIC publishes three main annual reports: the Board of Directors Report and the Annual Report, which target the financial and investor audience, and this Sustainability Report, which targets a wide internal and external audience.
Published on 9th April 2019, this report covers SABIC’s sustainability performance from January 1 to December 31, 2018. It includes all SABIC businesses and operations that are financially consolidated in our 2018 Annual Report, available at: https://www.sabic.com/en/investors/performance-financial-highlights/Annual-Reports.
Additional sustainability content, technical details and definitions are available in the Report Supplement document here
We believe external assessments improve our sustainability reporting, and for the last seven years we have used KPMG to increase our confidence in certain reported data. The limited assurance engagement includes absolute and intensity operational metrics: energy consumption, greenhouse-gas emissions, freshwater usage, material loss, flaring reduction and CO2 utilization, as well as selected corporate environment, health, safety, and security metrics, and compliance, as noted in the KPMG assurance report and marked by “*” throughout the report. For compliance data, we have applied a more limited scope. Compliance data are reported for the 23,500 employees of SABIC and its wholly owned affiliates, but not for employees of SABIC’s non-wholly owned manufacturing joint ventures (or affiliates) in Saudi Arabia.
