Chevron’s success story has been magnificently shaped by the role of CSR in its business ethics. Let’s discover how.
With a credible presence in Australia for more than 60 years, Chevron is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies. The Chevron Way reflects the firm’s commitment in everything that they pursue- no matter what the project or focus area. It vividly explains the Who, What, How, Which and most importantly the Why of Chevron. The vision to be the global energy firm most admired for its people, partnership and performance act as the guiding light for Chevron.
Across the globe, the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is gaining immense popularity. Enterprises in the modern business world understand the importance of establishing trust among their customers and in communities where they operate. And Chevron is no exception.
Let’s have a look at how Chevron is making a difference in the society.
- Environment Protection: Worldwide environmental stewardship is a key element of how Chevron does business. The firm takes charge and taking care of the environment is at the core of its success in a world where energy resources must be developed in a way that is environmentally safe and responsible.
Chevron works closely with government, communities, regulators and other industry members to seek visible solutions that meet the highest standards of environmental stewardship. At every stage of their project, the safety of the people and protection of the environment remain Chevron’s focus.
The following principles define Chevron’s commitment towards the planet:
- Decision making processes includes environmental considerations
- Reducing the environmental footprint globally
- Responsible operations
- Stewarding their sites
- Protecting People: Chevron never compromises with the safety of its people. Getting results the right way defines Chevron. The constant goal is to protect their people and develop a workplace that is incident and injury free.
There are well-designed policies, processes, tools and behavioural expectations in place to assist Chevron in achieving this goal.
- Harry Butler Legacy Project:
“Harry has woven into our being, as individuals and as a Corporation, the deep-rooted belief that business and biodiversity are not mutually exclusive but rather interdependent.”
Who was Harry Butler?
More than 50 years ago, when Chevron first stepped on to Barrow Island, the team was accompanied by Harry Butler, an enthusiastic young conservationist.
From the early days, Dr. Harry Butler helped Chevron to come up with solutions to push their operations and projects forward on Barrow Island without compromising on the fundamental conservation values.
It was Harry Butler who has been instrumental in creating a culture of environmental awareness with Chevron’s workforce.
Thus, to carry forward his legacy, Chevron launched ‘The Harry Butler Legacy Project’. The key components of this project are: nurturing an inspired and engaged workforce; third-party partnerships and collaboration; identifying and addressing knowledge gaps, and volunteering in the community.
With such meaningful CSR initiatives, Chevron has set high standards of business ethics and is certainly poised to lead other oil and gas companies by example.
