CHEVRON AND SOCIAL INVESTMENT
Chevron contributes to the economic and social well-being of people in the countries where we operate because we have learned through decades of experience that our business success is deeply linked to society’s progress. Beyond contributing to partner countries through direct business investment and taxes, we’ve made more than $1.7 billion in social investments to local communities over the past nine years. These investments aim to foster economic growth with a significant focus on health, education and economic development programs and partnerships. In 2014, we spent more than $240 million on global social investments.
Throughout the world, we partner with local governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations and communities to first understand their needs and then to develop programs together that will help remove economic barriers and deliver measurable and lasting results.
Chevron has three focus areas for social investment:
Economic development: We boost local economies and increase incomes by creating jobs and by building local workforce skills and capacity through our supply chain activities.
Health: Chevron promotes healthy communities by improving access to health care and by helping to fight against infectious diseases, particularly HIV/AIDS.
Education: We focus on improving instruction in science, technology, engineering and math and on helping to provide the career and technical training that can lead to good-paying jobs.
