Chevron Australia's employees are passionate about protecting the environment and through our partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia
, are encouraged to spend one paid day per year volunteering on a local environmental project.
Each year, hundreds of employees volunteer thousands of hours as part of the Conservation Volunteers initiative, Chevron River and Catchment Restoration Program.
This program provides much needed capacity and funding to improve the health of the Swan-Canning river system and has resulted in thousands of sedges planted along tributaries, wetlands, and banks to help re-establish the native vegetation, filter urban run-off and create important wildlife habitats.
In 2014, Chevron employees and community volunteers planted more than 100,000 seedlings and collected more than 2,000kgs of marine debris as part of the program.
Our partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia also funds an Aboriginal conservation training program which opens up employment opportunities and the ability to gain qualifications in conservation and land management while contributing to the Swan-Canning river system.
