CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
As a successful global business, we understand that our actions and vision play a foundational role in ensuring the success of future generations. Progress requires that we invest in the regions and locations where we operate, building healthy, resilient communities. We provide financial and societal benefit to our communities through employment, direct and indirect economic stimulation from our business activities, as well as charitable giving and social responsibility initiatives.
Our global CSR strategy RAISE provides a framework and process that will guide, organize, and streamline corporate contributions and employee volunteerism. Our CSR initiatives are evaluated against the RAISE criteria:
R: Reputation – raises SABIC’s overall visibility and reflects positively on corporate identity?
A: Audience – addresses key community needs and engages key stakeholders?
I: Innovation – includes a novel approach or new technology that distinguishes SABIC’s leadership?
S: Strategy – complements business interests and aligns with company values?
E: Endurance – promotes a socially responsible culture and generates a positive and lasting impact?
Under this strategy, our four priority focus areas are:
- Health and wellness
- Science and technology education
- Water and sustainable agriculture
- Environmental protection
