Orbia Publishes 2022 Impact Report

by Orbia | Mar 03, 2023

Orbia's identity as a purpose-driven, growth company is expressed by a business strategy that is anchored in sustainability. Orbia's 14th sustainability report is evolving to become an impact report, covering our responsibilities to society, people and planet, and our role as a driver for change, as reflected in our ImpactMark.

Data in this report relates to the 2022 calendar year and encompasses all global businesses under Orbia’s operational and financial control (more than 50% of voting rights), which assures alignment between sustainability and financial reporting. All monetary figures in this report are expressed in U.S. dollars (USD) unless otherwise specified. Environmental and social data in this report covers sites that were active and operational during 2022, from their date of acquisition or up to their date of divestment for all sites where we have operational control and excluding joint ventures where we have 50% or less ownership.

Environmental data includes manufacturing sites only (excludes offices, warehouses, distribution centers and other sites, which represent less than 5% of our environmental footprint). Social data includes all facilities, comprising manufacturing sites, offices, warehouses, distribution centers, and R&D labs. This year we launched a one-stop-shop reporting hub, consolidating our disclosures and facilitating access to our performance across topics and key standards.

During 2022, major acquisitions from 2021 (Vectus and Shakun) were integrated into our reporting systems, impacting the performance of certain indicators this year. As part of the integration process, acquisitions will organically align with Orbia’s commitments and goals.

The selection of content for this report was informed by a set of material topics developed through a process described in our Materiality Assessment Results. This report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) 2018 Chemicals Standard; and includes Orbia’s annual Communication on Progress for the UN Global Compact and our CEO Water Mandate disclosure. A selection of sustainability data was assured by an independent third party, for the period between January 1 and December 31, 2022. Their assurance statement can be found in our Sustainability Reporting Hub. Throughout this report, data marked with a checkmark is assured by an independent third party.
