SABIC’s leadership has created a robust governance system to ensure that our EHSS culture is supported by teams with real accountability. 

The EHSS Executive Council, comprising SABIC’s Vice-Chairman and CEO, executive vice presidents, EHSS  functional leaders, and members of the legal team, meets biannually to review performance, establish milestones, and review strategic programs and company-wide initiatives.

2018 Initiatives and Challenges


SABIC’s strong EHSS systems and processes empower all employees.

This year, we made strategic investments in the continuous improvement of systems and capabilities. One of the most significant initiatives was the launch of an integrated Operations Management System. 

We will continue to build on initiatives such as these in the years ahead, evolving EHSS key performance indicators (KPIs) and targets, and strengthening risk-discovery management and incident reporting.
