(*) Assured by KPMG.
(#) Adjusted for comparison purposes.
(1) Flaring reduction calculations are based on reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions.
(2) Compliance data are reported for the 23,500 employees of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation and its wholly-owned affiliates, but not for employees of SABIC’s non-wholly owned manufacturing joint ventures (or affiliates) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Note this is a severity-weighted rating.
