Improving the identification and management of environmental risks and opportunities, and elevating the role of biodiversity and ecosystem services within the energy industry


After collaborating for more than a decade, in 2014, Conservation International and Chevron launched a strategic partnership to advance the science, tools and practices used to identify and manage the ecological and related social risks in the development and production of energy resources.

Building on the expertise and resources of both organizations, the partnership continues to generate significant benefits for people and for nature in many parts of the world. Our field projects in Liberia, Indonesia and China, for instance, helped to protect critical ecosystems, improve human well-being and support better livelihoods for local communities. The partnership has also produced tools that are helping companies within and beyond the energy industry identify and manage environmental risks and opportunities.

To learn more about the Conservation International-Chevron strategic partnership, please see our Impact Report.
