CVX » Topics » Chevron’s opposition statement

These excerpts taken from the CVX PX14A6G filed May 13, 2009.
Chevron’s opposition statement states that the Board “believes that the production of a special report critiquing the environmental and health laws of the countries in which [we] operate is unnecessary and an inefficient use of Chevron resources.” This is a mischaracterization of our request, which requests greater transparency on the “the policies and procedures that guide Chevron’s assessment of host country laws and regulations….” [emphasis added], not a critique of numerous host country laws.

The opposition statement says that its internal environmental management systems are described on its web site. Those descriptions, however, shed no light on how host country laws and regulations are assessed. If the systems referenced do illuminate this question, it should not prove unduly burdensome for the company to disclose more information on the matter.
