SABIC announced the successful completion of its skills development Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program for 90 youth from less-privileged backgrounds in Hyderabad and Bhubaneshwar.

The program, run in collaboration with the Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology (CIPET), under the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Government of India, aimed to develop capacity in the plastics processing industry in India.

This collaboration is a part of SABIC's CSR commitment to create lasting value across the economic, social, human and environmental dimensions.

The program entails a six month-long residential skill development course including a full scholarship that covers course fee, boarding and lodging costs. The students were selected through a comprehensive screening process undertaken independently by CIPET.

Based on a special curriculum developed by CIPET with inputs from SABIC, students in CIPET, Hyderabad were trained on plastics extrusion, while those in CIPET, Bhubaneshwar were trained to operate injection moulding machines.

Upon successful completion of the course, the students are certified by CIPET and SABIC. These students are now equipped with skills that have enabled them to gain employment in various plastics processing hubs.
