health

health starts with our workforce and the communities where we operate

investing in our workforce and communities to improve health

Chevron is focused on contributing to employee and community health and wellbeing. In partnerships, we bring global experience, leadership and financial resources to assist in addressing the health risks having the greatest potential impact on our colleagues, their families and the communities where we operate. Together we leverage data to inform, educate and advocate for improvements in health.

Partnership is woven into the fabric of our company culture and as a global citizen, we strive to build, nurture and leverage relationships to support optimal health and wellbeing of our workforce, their families and the greater communities where we operate.

workforce wellness is at our core

At Chevron, the goal of our wide-ranging workforce wellness programs is a focus on whole-person health — the body, mind and lifestyle. In our operations, we evaluate work site conditions and staff behaviors to ensure employees will be able to get to and from work safely, as well as perform the physical, psychological and cognitive requirements safely before work begins. Our Healthy Heart program helps many employees learn how diet, exercise, and lifestyle affect their health. In alignment with our global HIV/AIDS policy, Chevron provides education, promotes prevention, prohibits discrimination against HIV-positive colleagues and in some areas of our operations greatly impacted by the disease, we provide treatment and support for affected employees. We offer access to counseling to address depression, anxiety and other emotional health and wellbeing concerns and in 2019, we are rolling out a targeted and enhanced mental health campaign.

We look at health and wellness not as a series of programs but as a comprehensive strategy to address the key health challenges for our diverse workforce.

our health strategies are integrated into communities

Our promotion of prevention, education and treatment extends beyond our businesses. For example, our road safety programs help protect employee, contractor and community health by improving driver decision-making and minimizing hazards resulting from unsafe driving conditions. Our strong safety culture is also built on sharing our traits and experiences with family, friends and neighbors in the community. We not only practice it, we encourage it.

We exercise our citizenship by investing in partnerships to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, Zika, dengue fever and other infectious diseases in risk-prone locations. Our partnerships with organizations such as The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Pact, and Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative achieve meaningful results globally and locally. One such example is our long-standing support of the Global Fund and their work in Africa and the Pacific Rim fighting HIV/AIDS. In 2018, they directed $2.5 million from recent Chevron funding to provide anti-retroviral therapy to almost 20,000 people and helped ensure the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS. Since 2008, we have contributed over $60 million to the Global Fund, supporting to their success in saving more than 27 million lives.

Healthy communities benefit everyone.

partnering to address evolving issues and trends

Our health strategies have evolved along with our experience and the growing expertise of our staff and partners. As a company we look for ways to innovate and continually improve. In 2018 we provided a grant of more than $1 million to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) to support their critical work, which helps organizations and health professionals better measure emerging health issues and develop data-driven solutions. IHME data is publicly available and used by policymakers to improve decision making on health strategies. In 2018, we also announced a $1 million grant to Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to expand its advocacy and education work to grow U.S. support for the Global Fund’s lifesaving work. Our partnership and support of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) helps them bring together thought leaders and identify solutions to the world’s greatest health challenges impacting us all.

We strategically combine social investment and leadership, enabling on-the-ground programmatic design and support. It’s more than just our workforce who live in communities; it’s their loved ones, their friends and their neighbors.
