PIC has long been committed to sustainability. Our journey accelerated in 2013 with launching the 2017 PIC Sustainability Goals and becoming a signatory of the UN Global Compact. We continue to make significant progress toward our goal of contributing to a sustainable tomorrow for our communities, for Kuwait and for our region.
The PIC 2015-2016 Sustainability Report shares our story. The report, written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines, features accomplishments during the 2015-2016 fiscal year and also describes the progress we have made over the past four years toward achieving the 2017 PIC Sustainability Goals. As the report shows, sustainability at PIC is more than achieving excellence within our own operations. Our sustainability focus extends to our global supply chain, to our communities, to our role in helping diversify Kuwait’s economy and to the development of the sustainability leaders of tomorrow.
Since its beginnings more than 50 years ago, PIC has continually strived to operate responsibly. We take great pride in our efforts to promote safe, efficient and ethical business practices and to positively impact lives in Kuwait and our region. We believe by integrating sustainability throughout PIC we can strengthen our Company and contribute to making our world a better place to live for future generations.
