Chevron’s purpose is to provide the affordable, reliable, ever-cleaner energy that enables human progress.

Last year reminded us of the importance of that purpose as we achieved record production levels to meet record global energy demand. At the same time, we continued to reduce carbon intensity in our operations and advance lower carbon solutions. It’s all part of building a resilient energy system that powers human progress.
