our approach

we're dedicated to upholding the highest ethical standards, respecting human rights, protecting people and the environment and benefitting the communities where we work

our values in action

We have a consistent framework to guide business decisions wherever we operate.

For more than 135 years, Chevron has proudly developed the energy that people and businesses depend on – helping to spur economic growth and improve the quality of life for communities worldwide.

We define corporate responsibility as putting the values of The Chevron Way into action. These values place the highest priority on maintaining ethical standards, respecting the law, supporting universal human rights, protecting people and the environment, and benefiting the communities where we work. Our focus on corporate responsibility is integrated into key business policies and processes, including our Business Conduct and Ethics Code, our Human Rights Policy, and our Operational Excellence Management System. This framework of policies and processes provides a standardized approach that enables us to identify and manage the corporate responsibility–related risks we encounter in our global business and to promote continual improvement of our safety, environmental and social performance.

Everywhere Chevron operates, we strive to build lasting partnerships that help create prosperity in the communities where we operate – now and for generations to come. Whether we’re helping prevent the spread of HIV from mothers to children, protecting the threatened desert tortoise, improving access to quality education or helping women in Liberia start microenterprises, we work with partners to identify needs and invest in solutions and programs that will deliver measurable and lasting results.
