Chevron contributes to the economic and social well-being of people in the countries where we operate because we recognize the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. Wherever we are, we strive to be a good neighbor, sharing the concerns of our communities and dedicating our capabilities, resources and people to creating a better future.
We have invested more than $1 billion since 2006 to fund initiatives that foster economic stability and improve the quality of life in communities around the world. Chevron partners with host governments, nongovernmental organizations and aid agencies to assess and understand local needs and the reasons behind them. We work with our partners to devise programs that will help improve health, support education and grow local economies.
We invest in improving the quality of life for our employees and neighbors by growing local economies, creating jobs, supporting small businesses, and promoting economic empowerment for women.
Because healthy people can create healthy societies, we work to improve access to preventive care and to strengthen health care systems.
We are committed to improving access to quality education, a critical element in the development of communities. We help train teachers and support science, technology, engineering and math education.
