Abstract: Long-term energy markets are being shaped by two primary forces: macroeconomic factors driving a future rise in world energy demand and global efforts to lower emissions. Affordable, reliable, and ever-cleaner energy is essential to human progress. At Chevron, we believe the future of energy is lower carbon and are committed to supplying the energy that the world needs in a sustainable way. Our Company’s efforts, which have spanned more than 140 years, are supported by a commitment to environment, social, and governance (ESG) issues. ESG is integrated throughout our global businesses and helps us work to protect the environment, empower people, and get results the right way.
