“The SABIC sustainability
mission is embedded in the
fabric of our business.
Our mission includes improving

REDUCING THE FOOTPRINT OF OUR MANUFACTURING ASSETS
Our operations are steered at
continuous improvement and
reduction of our environmental
footprint, with regards to:
- Greenhouse gases
- Energy
- Water
- Material Effectiveness
SABIC will invest more than 100 million EURO in
the upgrade of its naphta cracker in Geleen, the
Netherlands, in order to significantly improve the
energy- consumption of the plant and to reduce
CO2 emissions (to be realized before the end of
2013).

SABIC LCA APPROACH
 Dedicated team of LCA experts
 ISO 14044 Method
 Impact on “fossil depletion”, “climate change”, “acidification”, “eutrophication” etc….
 Analysis on “Cradle to Gate” and “Cradle to Grave” principle
 End of Life Principles – Plastics Europe EU 2010 data for packaging
• Landfill- 35%
• Incineration- 33%
• Recycling- 32%
 Reproducibility: an independent practitioner should be able to follow the approach and
arrive at the same results
 Environmental burden associated with infrastructure requirements are excluded

WHAT ABOUT BIOPLASTICS?
Decisions in favor of any material or
product must be based on sound
scientific criteria and a life cycle approach
“Bio-based solutions will be an important
part of the chemical industry’s
future”
Only those bio-based solutions must be
developed that do not compromise food
production or cause more problems than they
solve, such as habitat destruction
or large indirect CO2 emissions”
