We form long-term relationships with customers, supply chain partners, and industry peers, and we align our work with government and policy sustainability objectives. We also collaborate internally to embed sustainability across our company, product portfolios, and global markets.
ALLIANCE TO END PLASTIC WASTE
As a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), SABIC works alongside industry peers, NGOs, governments and multilateral institutions, and communities around the globe to target the problem of plastic waste.
SABIC team members are actively engaged in developing AEPW’s overarching strategy, as well as leading work on its key themes, including advanced recovery and recycling. We also support AEPW’s innovation platform Plug and Play.
SAUDI VISON 2030
SABIC is supporting the Saudi Arabian government’s Vision 2030 and 2035 goals by implementing TRUCIRCLETM pillars in Saudi Arabia. We are also collaborating with the Saudi Investment Recycling Company (SIRC) on efforts to reduce waste and drive the circular economy.
INTERNAL COLLABORATION FOR INVENTING AND IMPROVING PROCESSES
We leverage SABIC expertise from teams across our company to develop and implement innovative technologies. Through collaborations like these in 2020, SABIC retrofitted a plant to produce much-needed hand sanitizer during the COVID-19 pandemic. In another example, our cross-functional teams came together to create a new sustainable palm oil policy and system.
