corporate responsibility reporting
prioritizing issues for our reporting
Our corporate responsibility reporting focuses on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that matter to our business and our stakeholders – investors, customers, host governments, local communities and employees. To select the content for our 2018 Corporate Responsibility Report Highlights and the corporate responsibility section of chevron.com, we interviewed subject matter experts from across our business segments to identify and validate relevant ESG topics. In addition, Chevron worked with a research firm that conducted anonymous surveys of institutional investors, nongovernmental organization (NGOs) and other external stakeholders. Both groups of stakeholders identified the same issues highlighted in the previous year’s report. Chevron's Global Issues Committee, a subcommittee of Chevron's Executive Committee, reviewed and validated our assessment and prioritization.
To learn more about the ESG issues that matter to our stakeholders and our business:
Protecting the environment: We protect the environment through innovative and responsible operations
Addressing climate change: We take prudent and cost-effective actions to manage climate change business risks and pursue opportunities to lower our emissions and develop lower-carbon energy.

Getting results the right way: Chevron is committed to strong governance and the highest standards of ethics.
Prioritizing our culture of operational excellence: We manage health, safety and environmental risks.

Our data from 2018 reflect the progress we’ve made in our environmental, health and safety, and social performance. We follow IPIECA/API/IOGP* oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting. For 2018, Chevron reported on all 34 indicators. Read the IPIECA/API/IOGP content index
