Chevron employees are active members of the community. During the 2014-2015 fiscal year, nearly 800 employees donated blood during Chevron’s annual drive. The Bangladesh Red Crescent Society recognized Chevron as the largest corporate blood donor for 2013 and 2014.

Also, between 2007 and 2015, Chevron helped plant more than 133,000 saplings near its three fields.

Chevron has also joined forces with the world’s largest NGO, BRAC (formerly the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee), to launch a comprehensive road-safety awareness program for the communities near the Bibiyana gas field and the city of Sylhet. To date, more than 800 drivers have received defensive driving training. Safety awareness training has been provided to 4,500 schoolchildren and more than 100 teachers at 25 schools in the Bibiyana area.

Being a Good Neighbor

Energy drives lives and fuels growth…and nowhere is that more apparent than in growing economies like Bangladesh. This is the story of Chevron, a globally integrated energy company that has now made an indelible imprint on Bangladesh’s energy landscape. As Bangladesh surges full steam ahead to become a Middle-Income Country by 2020, Chevron is an important part of its ever-evolving story of progress and change. And it is not alone in this journey. Chevron takes pride in partnerships: with Petrobangla and the Government of Bangladesh, and with the communities where we work, producing approximately 50% of Bangladesh’s national gas supply. It is the largest investor in Bangladesh with investments-to-date exceeding $1.4 billion. Besides, Chevron’s community development programs help nearly 37,000 people every year, through a focus on livelihoods, education and health.
