Chevron contributes to the economic and social well-being of people in the countries where we operate because we have learned through decades of experience that our business success is deeply linked to society’s progress.
Beyond contributing to partner countries through direct business investment and taxes, we’ve made nearly $1.5 billion in social investments to local communities over the past eight years. These investments aim to foster economic growth with a significant focus on health, education and economic development programs and partnerships. In 2013, we spent almost $275 million on global social investments.
We work with local governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations and communities to first undertand their needs and then to develop programs together that will help remove economic barriers and deliver measurable and lasting results.
We boost local economies and increase incomes by creating jobs and by building local workforce skills and capacity through our supply chain activities.
Chevron promotes healthy communities by improving access to health care in order to help eradicate diseases.
We focus on improving instruction in science, technology, engineering and math and helping provide the technical training that can lead to good-paying jobs.
In 2013, through our company-sponsored community involvement program Chevron Humankind, more than 13,000 employees and retirees contributed approximately 160,000 volunteer hours to more than 5,600 charitable organizations in the United States. Additionally, Chevron employees and retirees contributed more than $19 million to U.S. nonprofits, which Chevron matched, for a total of more than $37 million.
