Chevron’s 2011 CSR Report Provides a (Too) Rosy Picture of the Company
Few years ago a CSR report released by an oil company sounded like an oxymoron. Even later on when these reports have become more common, it still looked to many people as a greenwashing attempt. After all, can a company really show it cares about the environment and stakeholders when its core business is oil production? I was hoping Chevron’s 2011 CSR report would prove this assumption to be wrong and that the “bad guys try to be better.” Is it too much to ask in 2012? Apparently yes, although to be honest, there is no simple answer of Yes or No to this question. While it does look that Chevron is making some progress, these are mostly baby steps, and when you’re one of the largest oil companies in the world baby steps might not be enough.
