Chevron Issues Second Climate Report

Chevron Corp. (CVX) published its second report describing the company's approach to managing climate change risks and its resilience under a low carbon scenario.

"We proactively consider climate change in our business decisions, and we have the experience, processes and governance in place to manage the risks," said Michael Wirth, Chevron's Chairman and CEO. "We believe we are equipped to continue to succeed in any business environment as we deliver affordable, reliable energy that is a fundamental driver of economic growth and human progress."

Aligned with the Financial Stability Board's Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures recommendations, Chevron's report explains the company's strategic decision-making approach to climate change related risks. These include ongoing evaluations of the company's portfolio and future investments, its views of supply, demand, commodity and carbon prices, and the factors that drive global economic change.

The report summarizes Chevron's work to test the competitiveness of its current assets under multiple scenarios, including some of the most restrictive greenhouse gas reduction proposals such as the Sustainable Development Scenario from the International Energy Agency. The results demonstrate that the company's portfolio, due to its maturity and diversity across assets and geographies, is resilient in a wide variety of possible scenarios and enables Chevron to be flexible in response to potential changes.

"We know that climate change is a growing area of interest for our investors and other stakeholders. We're committed to addressing the risks of climate change while delivering the energy that benefits societies and economies," said Dr. Ronald Sugar, lead independent director for Chevron's Board of Directors.
