We believe that preserving a clean, safe, healthy environment can go hand in hand with meeting the world's energy needs. We are continually evaluating and striving to improve our processes to reduce pollution and waste, conserve natural resources, and minimize potential negative environmental impacts of our activities and operations.
From our everyday actions to major capital investments, we are dedicated to making the right decisions for the environment. We use our Operational Excellence Management System to identify and manage risks and to improve reliability and safety in all our operations.
Because we share the public concern about climate change and our planet, we invest in programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency.
Water is necessary for producing energy. As consumers of this vital resource, we take seriously our responsibility to manage and conserve fresh water as effectively as possible.
In all our operations, Chevron strives to conserve biological diversity by avoiding or reducing potential harm to sensitive species, habitats and ecosystems.
We strive both to use energy as efficiently as possible in our own operations, and to help others improve their energy efficiency.
