SABIC has launched a new partnership with DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) as it seeks to improve its environment, health and safety (EHS) performance.
DuPont, a noted safety leader in the chemicals industry, will work with SABIC and provide experience and know-how as the Saudi company seeks to move from a compliance-driven approach to a risk-based approach. SABIC says that it has long been committed to EHS performance but wishes to become a world leader in the area.
“The positive shift that companies have made from a compliance-driven approach to a risk-based approach has delivered much value to improve their EHS performance, and leaders play a key role in driving sustainable change through greater engagement of all levels in the organisation,” said Ehsan Akhavan, the DSS director leading the project with SABIC.
The new EHS transformation project aims to strengthen operational risk management, leadership capabilities, and effectiveness of systems and processes, with engagement and advice from DuPont.
“SABIC’s EHS achievements in recent years have been impressive, and yet, there is a strong desire within the leadership team to reach the next level in EHS culture maturity, as outlined in the SABIC 2025 strategy,” said Ahmed Al-Shaikh, SABIC executive vice president, corporate manufacturing.
