SUPPLY CHAIN CARBON FOOTPRINT MODEL

We are continuing our effort to reduce the carbon footprint of our supply chain through innovative, industry-leading solutions. In addition to running significant projects to reduce our greenhouse-gas emissions, this year, we completed a comprehensive modeling system that enables us to see, in detail, our supply chain carbon footprint and identify areas for improvement.

SABIC’s Global Supply Chain Sourcing and Excellence team introduced a new supply chain carbon-footprint model that provides emissions details down to the individual-shipment level.

This model incorporates energy-based carbon-footprint contributions on every transport mode and route where actual fuel consumption can be measured. Where energy-based measurement is unavailable, we use industry-standard emissions factors for transport modes.

GASCHEM BELUGA AND GASCHEM ORCA

SABIC’s next-generation vessels, GasChem Beluga and GasChem Orca, have now been operational for a full year – and they are performing even better than expected. The vessels feature a breakthrough design with an increased carrying capacity of 30 percent, which reduces fuel consumption considerably, even as it maximizes reliability and sea endurance.

AN ENERGY-EFFICIENT DESIGN COMPARED TO STANDARD LNG/LEG VESSELS

SABIC has pioneered a new design with the GasChem Orca and GasChem Beluga vessels to more equally balance the weight of the ships in the bow, so that when they are unloaded, they sail more evenly without as much additional ballast – and with less fuel. In addition, we fuel these ships with ethane, which is less polluting than diesel. 
 
Thanks to the efficient and innovative design of the GasChem vessels, their dual fuel engines have emitted 23.7 kilotons or 32 percent less carbon dioxide when benchmarked with comparable conventional vessels that carry the same type of cargo.

NCC FAJR

Since 2014, we have used the NCC Fajr chemical tanker to carry SABIC goods. The carbon intensity of each shipment was 27 percent below the industry average, reducing our carbon footprint from these shipments by 18.5 kilotons of greenhouse-gas emissions over the course of the year.

REDUCING EMISSIONS IN ASIA THROUGH RE-PALLETIZATION

SABIC has embarked on a new approach to provide compounding feedstock in Asia, enabling us to reduce our carbon emissions by 138 tons in 2018.  In 2019, we expect to repack 9,000 tons, saving 2,147 tons of emissions.

Reducing Carbon through New Digital, Paperless Booking System

In November this year, SABIC rolled out a new website and mobile application, giving our north China customers an opportunity to book transportation for supply chain solids in Asia. The system requires no paper and has the potential to save 403 kg of carbon dioxide equivalent annually.

From Road to Sea with Reduced Carbon

In China, our logistics team changed the transportation used for 40 kilotons of goods, shifting from road to short-sea inter-modal transportation. This shift results in a net savings of 2.3 kilotons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
