corporate responsibility reporting

we're committed to demonstrating our values and getting results the right way

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 2016 Corporate Responsibility Report Highlights and the corporate responsibility section of, we used an issue prioritization process that involved the following steps:

Step 1: A team of employees from across our functions and business segments identified and validated ESG topics that are salient to our stakeholders and our business, using the outcome from our 2015 issue prioritization process as a basis. The team considered internal and external sources, including international reporting guidelines and frameworks, ESG analytics, topics addressed in previous Corporate Responsibility Reports, feedback received on the 2015 Corporate Responsibility Report Highlights, media analysis, industry peer reviews, and learnings from a range of internal and external stakeholder engagements.

Step 2: The team conducted an initial prioritization of ESG issues based on relevance to our business.

Step 3: The team sought feedback on the initial prioritization of issues through dialogues with internal subject matter experts and external stakeholders.

Step 4: The team determined the issues that are of highest priority for our reporting.

Step 5: Chevron's Global Issues Committee, a subcommittee of Chevron's Executive Committee, reviewed and validated the team's assessment and prioritization. We discuss the issues of highest priority in our Corporate Responsibility Report Highlights or on our website. 

Our prioritized issues reflect topics covered in the 2015 edition of the IPIECA/API/IOGP* Oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting. For 2016, Chevron reported on all 34 indicators.
