Overview:

Our Commitment

Andeavor has long been dedicated to being a socially responsible corporate citizen. By aligning our philanthropic investments in a way that serves our communities’ needs, harnesses our employees’ passions and interests and aligns with our business goals and objectives, we hope to create Shared Value for us and the communities where we operate.

Our Focus

Andeavor and its employees provide support to 501(c)(3) non-profit and government-related organizations and agencies in the form of foundation grants, corporate contributions and sponsorships, workplace giving and volunteerism. While we will accept requests from eligible organizations across our service territory, preference will be given to communities where the Company has a significant employee presence.

With guidance from nearly 1,800 employees and several dozen community stakeholders, as well as data garnered from the largest benchmarking study of the oil and gas industry, Andeavor strategically focuses its community investments on three core areas where it can make a positive, measurable impact. Andeavor also provides limited support to community-based organizations to address local health, human and social service needs.

Environmental Conservation & Sustainability

Andeavor is vigilant in working to ensure that our operations do not have a negative impact on natural resources. Consistent with our commitment to protecting the environment is supporting community programs involving conservation and sustainability. Andeavor supports government agencies; environmental and community groups; and trade, professional and industry associations devoted to efforts that protect, conserve and sustain our environmental resources. These efforts may include recycling initiatives, clean-ups, educational programs, the construction of nature trails and research projects.

STEM Education

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the United States will have more than 1.2 million job openings in science-, technology-, engineering- and mathematics- (STEM) related occupations by 2018. Yet, there will be a significant shortage of qualified high school and college graduates to fill these careers.

From engineers to pipefitters, chemists to accountants, IT specialists to welders, Andeavor’s success relies on our ability to recruit and retain employees with exceptional STEM-related skills. As an employer constantly seeking out top-talent and as a socially responsible corporate citizen, supporting STEM education-related programs is the cornerstone of Andeavor’s community investment strategy.

 Our goal is to invest in STEM-related initiatives that better prepare middle school, high school and career/technical education (CTE) students for professional and academic success by increasing access to high-quality, educational resources and instruction. Beginning in 2016, 50 percent of our strategic community investments will be dedicated to supporting STEM education initiatives.

Public Safety

At Andeavor, safety is and always will be a Core Value. We are committed to operating our refineries, pipelines, retail stations and other facilities in a manner that promotes the health and safety of our employees and customers and are focused on making our communities stronger, safer places to live, work and play. 

We provide funding, equipment and support to first responders, government agencies and community-based organizations to increase the overall safety of the communities where we operate. Preference is given to projects and organizations that help communities better prepare for, mitigate the risks of and respond to disasters, hazards and emergencies.
