everywhere we work, we strive to build lasting partnerships to create prosperity now and for decades to come

creating prosperity:
An country of progress

We invest significantly in major projects and local goods and services, create jobs, and generate revenues for local communities. Beyond contributions to our partner countries through direct business investments and taxes, we contribute to local communities by making strategic social investments in three core areas: health, education and economic development.

local economic impact

Chevron partners with independent research and analysis firms to assess our economic impact on countries where we operate. These studies evaluate Chevron’s direct and indirect spending throughout our supply chain and show the positive impact on local employment and spending, which improves livelihoods.

We contribute to the communities where we live and work by creating jobs, developing and sourcing from local suppliers and employing local workforces.

economic development

We work with communities and partners to make social investments in programs that promote self-sufficiency, job growth and economic development. We start by working closely with the communities and our partners to assess local needs, then we take actions to help remove barriers to economic growth.

our partnership
initiatives

Our partnership initiatives around the world strengthen local economies through programs that provide microloan services, that focus on enterprise and workforce development, and that improve education. Among these partnerships are the Niger Delta Partnership Initiative (NDPI), the Appalachia Partnership Initiative (API) in the United States, the Bangladesh Partnership Initiative (BPI) and the Thailand Partnership Initiative (TPI). By leveraging our partners’ resources and expertise we can help drive scale and sustainable impact in these communities.

We recognize the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. And we know that when employees and communities succeed, we succeed.
