Occidental's goal is to consider the self-sufficiency, sustainability, health, safety and environment of the communities in which we operate, and to conduct our business as a responsible corporate citizen. Occidental seeks to strengthen local economies, applying a business model that encourages communities to develop and thrive. In addition, we engage in numerous partnerships that address regional needs and generate economic activity in our operating locations.
In each of our business locations, we follow established procedures to gain an understanding of the potential effects of Occidental's presence on the local community and the surrounding region. By investing our time and resources in programs and initiatives that support the areas surrounding our operations, we advance our relationships with neighboring communities and work to promote mutually beneficial outcomes.
