everywhere we work, we strive to build lasting partnerships to create prosperity now and for decades to come

creating prosperity:
the business of progress

We invest significantly in major projects and local goods and services, create jobs, and generate revenues for local communities. Beyond contributions to our partner countries through direct business investments and taxes, we contribute to local communities by making strategic social investments in three core areas: health, education and economic development.

local economic impact

Chevron partners with independent research and analysis firms to assess our economic impact on countries where we operate. These studies evaluate Chevron’s direct and indirect spending throughout our supply chain and show the positive impact on local employment and spending, which improves livelihoods.

local capacity training

building local capacity

We demonstrate our commitment to the countries and communities where we live and work by creating jobs, developing and sourcing from local suppliers, and employing local workforces. This business strategy establishes Chevron as the partner of choice that helps build local economies and improve livelihoods.

economic development

economic development

We work with communities and partners to make social investments in programs that promote self-sufficiency, job growth and economic development. We start by working closely with the communities and our partners to assess local needs, then we take actions to help remove barriers to economic growth.

our partnership

Our partnership initiatives around the world strengthen local economies through programs that provide microloan services, that focus on enterprise and workforce development, and that improve education. Among these partnerships are the Niger Delta Partnership Initiative (NDPI), the Appalachia Partnership Initiative (API) in the United States, the Bangladesh Partnership Initiative (BPI) and the Thailand Partnership Initiative (TPI). By leveraging our partners’ resources and expertise we can help drive scale and sustainable impact in these communities.

health care


We recognize the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. And we know that when the communities where we operate succeed, we succeed. Chevron invests in programs aimed at improving access to health care for these communities. Working with partners, we support initiatives that build local capacity and deliver real and lasting gains in the fight against devastating diseases.

partnering to help eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV

Chevron works with our partners using an integrated approach to strengthen health systems where we operate. In our fight against HIV/AIDS, we recognize that ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV is one of the most feasible ways to achieve an AIDS-free generation.

In 2012, Chevron partnered with Pact in the state of Bayelsa, Nigeria, to establish a community-based and government-supported statewide outreach program for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT).

Since 2012, we have partnered with Pact to increase AIDS awareness, testing and counseling.

If people and communities are to thrive, education and job training are of critical importance. We’re focused on improving instruction in science, technology, engineering and math and providing career and technical training that can lead directly to well-paying jobs.
