Commitment & Approach
SABIC’s sustainability effort is guided by a materiality process to ensure that our business and sustainability strategies are aligned. Aligning the strategies enables us to focus resources on the risks and opportunities that are most important to our stakeholders and business success. Our five most material issues, detailed in the illustration below, have been the focus areas to which we have matched our sustainability priorities since 2013.
We are beginning to explore the newly adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the ways that SABIC’s products and services can improve human welfare, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
We believe these approaches and focus areas help us to prioritize our activities, allocate resources, and decide where we need to develop key processes and metrics to track our performance today and in the future. We will periodically review and assess these focus areas through an ongoing materiality analysis to ensure that we are concentrating our work in areas that address changing risks, opportunities, and stakeholders' expectations.
