industry-specific reporting

we report against the IPIECA/API/IOGP guidelines for the oil and gas industry


The third edition of the Oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting, published in 2015, was jointly produced by IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, the American Petroleum Institute (API), and the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP). The guidance represents industry consensus on the most prevalent issues and indicators for the oil and gas sector, and Chevron played a role in its development.

The guidance includes indicators and reporting elements to help companies report against priority issues. Chevron currently reports on all 34 indicators. In the table below, we signal how we believe our reporting meets the intent of the common reporting elements in the indicator descriptions, and we provide relevant links to our reporting on each indicator.

Performance data can also be found in our 2015 Corporate Responsibility Report.
