If these "date" values are stored in a DATE column, use TO_CHAR with appropriate format mask in order to convert it to a character string. Then use SUBSTR function to extract every digit. For example:
SQL> with dates as
  2    (select to_char(sysdate, 'yyyy') c_year from dual)
  3  select substr(c_year, level, 1) c_digit
  4  from dates
  5  connect by level <= 4;

C
-
2
0
1
4

SQL>

I don't know, I don't use BI Publisher. I *hope* it supports SUBSTR, and that's all you need. You'd just rewrite it as
select substr(c_year, 1, 1) first_digit,
       substr(c_year, 2, 1) second_digit, 
       substr(c_year, 3, 1) third_digit,
       substr(c_year, 4, 1) fourth_digit
from your_table
or even
first_digit  := substr(c_year, 1, 1);
second_digit := substr(c_year, 2, 1);
etc.
