Sustainability Goals

In 2015, we developed a set of Sustainability Goals to enhance the long-term sustainable development of Borouge. There are six goals based on People, Planet and Profit, and each has quantifiable targets covering a broad spectrum of the operations and activities of Borouge

​​The targets were rolled out in 2016, and are designed to optimise the social,environmental, and economic impact of our operations. Our Sustainability Goals were developed through in-depth collaboration and engagement with the organisation and the Borouge Sustainability Committee. As they are company-wide goals, everyone can contribute to their achievement

The following illustration demonstrates the outcomes of our 2021 Sustainability Goals.​​

We successfully achieved all of our 2021 Sustainability People Goals. However, we did not meet two targets from the Planet and Profit goals. This was due to our current strategy transformation, as our innovation strategy advances, these two goals no longer apply to our operations’ priorities as we move towards a more sustainable product portfolio

The Product Sustainability Index (PSI) goal focused on assessing products or grades related to single use plastic packaging. However, our business strategy changed to minimise these and focus on advanced packaging solutions
