In Communities

We believe the most effective social and charitable investments are made through strategic relationships with organizations dedicated to serving our communities, day in and day out. We align our charitable efforts with our core values and business strategies through these programs and initiatives:

  • Signature programs: Coordinated campaigns focus our resources to meaningfully and measurably address two significant issues:
    • Water & biodiversity stewardship (global):  Strategic and innovative projects that more effectively and efficiently advance water and biodiversity conservation efforts.
    • Math education (Houston, Texas):  Improving student engagement and performance in pre-Algebra and other core math subjects, and increasing teacher effectiveness.

  • Local contributions: We support the education, health and safety, natural resource, arts, civic, social services and disaster relief programs vital to the health and well-being of the communities where we live and work.

  • Employee giving programs: Our employees and retirees are generous and engaged in their communities. We support their local charitable activities through our matching gift and volunteer grants programs.
