featurecontributing to the SDGs
we work to advance the UN’s sustainable development goals as part of our commitment to enable human progress around the world
In September 2015, all 193 United Nations (U.N.) member states adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs set a global agenda for overcoming poverty, protecting the planet, and promoting peace and prosperity.
Chevron safely develops and delivers the affordable, reliable and cleaner energy that is necessary for social and economic progress. Guided by this purpose, our work makes progress a reality for millions of people in the communities we serve.
Energy drives human progress. In particular, developing countries need affordable, reliable, and ever-cleaner energy to create jobs, improve health and education, and improve lives. Affordable energy will enable countries to grow their economies and meet the SDGs.
We are proud to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which we view as a system of targets and objectives that build on each other to achieve a more sustainable future and make progress toward the global 2030 agenda. We believe the next decade will be full of partnership, action and growth, and we are well-positioned to be part of the solution: Chevron is a company full of doers with a long history of solving complex challenges, and we will continue to innovate for the future.
Meeting the 2030 global agenda will require partnership, innovation and action; we are well-positioned to be part of the solution.
Chevron touches all 17 SDGs through our day-to-day operations, partnership initiatives and social investment opportunities; however, we focus on five goals that identify where we believe we can make our greatest contribution. We work with key partners, communities and industry groups to maximize positive outcomes and continually deepen our understanding of sustainable development.
SDG 3: good health and well-being ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
SDG 4: quality education ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong opportunities for all
Chevron invests in a comprehensive range of education activities. We encourage students to pursue STEM opportunities;, provide career, teacher, and technical training; and form innovative partnerships with universities and other stakeholders.
Chevron’s Enjoy Science Project is a $30 million, five-year program to strengthen STEM and vocational education across schools in Thailand. Through collaboration with partners in civil society, academia, the private sector and government, the program is on track to improve STEM instruction at more than 600 schools, build capacity for approximately 10,000 teachers and directly impact 500,000 people.
