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.

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 the 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, enterprise and workforce development and improve education. They include: the Niger Delta Partnership Initiative (NDPI), Appalachia Partnership Initiative (API) in the U.S., Bangladesh Partnership Initiative (BPI), and Thailand Partnership Initiative (TPI). By leveraging our partners’ resources and expertise we can help drive scale and sustainable impact in these communities.



We recognize the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. And we know that when our communities succeed, we succeed. Chevron invests in programs aimed at improving access to health care to support the communities where we operate. 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.
