Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure

LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (the “Company”) has identified certain products manufactured by its polyolefins business for use in wire and cable applications that contain a “conflict mineral” (tin) as defined by Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Company considers the use of this conflict mineral necessary for the production of these products. The Company in good faith has conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding the sources of this conflict mineral and, based on the results of this inquiry, the Company has no reason to believe that the conflict mineral may have originated from the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining countries. The Company’s inquiry included seeking and obtaining written confirmations from each of the Company’s suppliers of the conflict mineral demonstrating that the supplier’s product did not come from the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining countries. The Company has determined these supplier confirmations to be reasonably reliable based on its evaluation of the confirmations, the Company’s assessment of its supply chain to identify potential red flags, if any, in these confirmations and conducting follow-up with the relevant suppliers as necessary. These confirmations identify only South American smelters as being used by the applicable suppliers and include assurances that no conflict minerals sold to the Company originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining countries.

The Company does not believe, based on an internal assessment of its product portfolio, that any of its other products manufactured and sold in 2013 contain any conflict minerals.

This Conflicts Minerals Disclosure is also available on the Company’s website at
