Climate Change

We proactively consider climate change in our business decisions

Chevron is taking actions to address climate change and is committed to working with policymakers to design balanced and transparent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions policies that address environmental goals and ensure consumers have access to affordable, reliable and ever cleaner-energy.

Chevron shares the concerns of governments and the public about climate change. We recognize the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that the use of fossil fuels contributes to increases in global temperatures. We align our outlook and activity with the principles of the IPCC.
