We respect the heritage, dignity and rights of those who live
and work in the countries where Oxy conducts its business. At
Oxy, we respect the laws, customs and cultural values of the
communities in which we operate and strive to meet the highest
standards of integrity. We utilize several policies and systems,
including our Human Rights Policy and Code of Business Conduct,
that are designed to ensure Oxy’s business practices are
consistently effective and highly principled.
The Human Rights Policy, adopted by the Board of Directors in
2004, forms the cornerstone of Oxy’s SR Program. It delineates
the company’s commitment to promote, throughout our operations,
those rights and freedoms universally recognized in
international and national law and that are set forth in guiding
principles such as the Voluntary Principles on Security and
Human Rights (VPs).
