Placing sustainability at the forefront of our values
At Chevron, we place sustainability at the forefront of our values. We acknowledge our responsibility to the environment, society, and ethical business practices. Our sustainability objectives and priorities are aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are the guiding principles behind our actions.
Reducing carbon emissions across all scopes: Our commitment to environmental responsibility propels us towards a comprehensive reduction in carbon emissions. In line with climate science, we have set science-based targets with the aim of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Simultaneously, we are actively advancing the implementation of a certified carbon management system (PAS 2080) to systematically minimise emissions.
Our net zero roadmap addresses 3 key areas of focus:
Net Zero Operations
Net Zero Depots
Net Zero Value Chain
Conserving natural resources through efficiency: We are dedicated to the efficient use of natural resources, waste reduction, and the pursuit of zero waste to landfill. Our ISO 14001 Environmental and ISO 50001 Energy management systems enhance our environmental performance, and we actively collaborate with our clients and supply chain to improve resource efficiency, minimise waste, and reduce our environmental impact.
Promoting and investing in biodiversity: Our Chevron Green Services division plays a pivotal role in promoting biodiversity. We support our clients with biodiversity assessments, ecological surveys, and tree planting initiatives. These actions not only enhance the environmental value of our projects but also contribute to the preservation of local ecosystems.
Promoting and supporting physical and mental health: We provide a specialist safety-critical enabling service to our clients and customers, so that the safety of our employees, supply chain partners, clients and customers is our priority. We work closely with our clients and supply chain to eliminate hazards and mitigate risks by deploying innovative digital solutions. By utilising HRS’s Intellicone® Incursion Prevention & Warning System (IIPAWS) system on our sites, we seek to reduce the risk of physical harm to our employees and clients following vehicle incursions into our work zones. All these initiatives are supported and driven forward by our ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety management system, demonstrating our commitment to continual improvement in this area.
Maximising the delivery of social value: We go beyond standard practices by maximising social value for our employees, partners, and communities. This includes skills training, job creation, and community development initiatives. Read our social value page to find out more.
Championing equality, diversity, and inclusion: Equality, diversity, and inclusion principles are fundamental to our workplace culture. We integrate the Fairness, Inclusion, and Respect (FIR) framework into our operations, creating an inclusive work environment where everyone is treated with respect and fairness.
Responsible and ethical business
Maintaining our IMS and compliance framework: Upholding the highest ethical standards is non-negotiable. Our Integrated Management System (IMS) and compliance framework ensure efficiency and integrity in all our business dealings and is aligned with the principles of the international standard ISO 37301 Compliance Management. Our internal learning management system enhances training and competency, whilst our depot management framework ensures transparency and compliance across our 45 operational depots.
Collaboration for sustainability: Sustainability is a collective effort. We collaborate with clients and supply chain partners to champion sustainability through our ISO 44001 Collaborative Business Relationship management system.
An example of how collaboration has been able to support sustainability is our Area 9 Traffic Management Team, whose goal was to provide a fully integrated traffic management service from design and development through to delivery. And in the process helped deliver improvements to connectivity, eliminating waste, delivering social value, improving safety, providing employment opportunities and upskilling of our workforce.
Ensuring open and fair governance: Transparency and accountability are core principles. We are committed to transparent reporting on our sustainability progress, providing stakeholders with a clear view of our environmental and social impact metrics.
We aim to make a positive impact on the environment, society, and business practices. Our sustainability objectives are more than ideals; they are a testament to our commitment to a sustainable future.
Our approach to Governance has been consistently recognised by our investor, Triton, with Chevron receiving the Triton ESG Overall Award in 2020 and 2023, with a further Governance award received in 2021.
