The SABIC Sustainable Procurement Policy requires suppliers to meet the Supplier Code of Conduct.
The policy ensures we get the materials and services we need, when we need them, at the lowest total cost of ownership. Suppliers must meet our requirements for quality, EHSS, and ethics.
SUPPLIER LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT (SLM)
SABIC utilizes the Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM) Due Diligence program as its supplier qualification process. With each new registration, screening, and audit, we learn more about our global supply chain.
This year, we registered 391 suppliers, bringing the total to 25,879. Ninety suppliers that were non-compliant were removed from the database.
INCREASING LOCAL SOURCING EXPENDITURE
SABIC plays a pivotal role in contributing to Saudi Vision 2030, the government’s ambitious plan for national growth. We support capable local manufacturers and stimulate employment for the local workforce.
This year, 61 percent of sourcing in Saudi Arabia came from local suppliers.
