Resolved clause
As the nation and our Company prepare for and participate in a transitioning energy economy, our Company should play a role to in helping provide security for impacted workers and communities where our Company operates.
Our Company’s Chairman and CEO Michael K. Wirth has personally signed the Business Roundtable’s Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation which affirmed our Company’s commitment to serve all stakeholders, including “investing in our employees” and supporting the communities in which we work.” (
UN PRI’s Statement of Investor Commitment to Support a Just Transition on Climate Change states that “the responsible management of workforce and community dimensions of climate change are increasingly material drivers for value creation.” (
In the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) 2015 Guidelines for a Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies for All, ILO emphasizes that the transition to environmentally sustainable economies and societies involves “the pivotal role of employers” and “anticipating impacts on employment, adequate and sustainable social protection for job losses and displacement, skills development and social dialogue, including the effective exercise of the right to organize and bargain collectively.” (… cms_432859.pdf)
In its 2021 Corporate Sustainability Report, the Company stated that it conducts stakeholder engagement that includes discussing climate change and energy transition with employees. (…- 2021.pdf) However, in its 2021 Climate Change Resilience Report where the Company outlined and discussed transition risks that covered policy, technology, market, legal and reputational risks, it did not mention any socioeconomic risks on workers and communities or how its stakeholder engagement with employees and communities influences its climate change response and mitigation plan. ( /media/chevron/sustainability/documents/2021-climate-change-resilience-report.pdf)
For these reasons, it is imperative that the Board creates the proposed report as a first step towards understanding and mitigating the impact of future plant closings and transition on workers and communities where the Company operates.
We urge shareholders to vote “FOR” this proposal.
