Our Framework

Our Approach to Social Responsibility

Occidental's Social Responsibility (SR) framework is rooted in our core values of integrity, investment and innovation. This framework promotes transparency and collaboration with our key stakeholders to develop and implement sustainable SR programs. Occidental's SR programs support company business objectives and positively affect people, communities and the environment. At our business locations, we follow established procedures to gain an understanding of how Occidental's presence affects the surrounding area and the challenges faced by local communities. By investing in programs and initiatives that manage operational impacts and address key stakeholder concerns, Occidental strengthens relationships with communities and creates shared value for stakeholders and our business.

Occidental's SR commitments and ongoing initiatives are categorized into five pillars: governance and transparency, workforce development, health and safety, environmental stewardship and economic and social development.
