Adding Value

Adding Value

Anadarko is committed to investing in the communities in which we live and work. That means investing and giving of our time, efforts and funds. At Anadarko, we develop relationships with non-profit partners to facilitate many of our positive contributions to communities and enable sustainability of our projects well into the future. Anadarko’s social investment positively affects the economies of local towns and cities, and enhances the lives of individuals.

In 2017, Anadarko employees volunteered approximately 28,000 hours with nonprofit organizations, and the company invested $25.4 million dollars in social investment initiatives around the globe. 

At Anadarko, we prioritize our social investments among the following groups:

  • Charitable Giving: Financial donations that may be one-time or recurring but are not necessarily directly related or impactful to Anadarko operations.
  • Community Investment: Carefully designed development initiatives that are mutually beneficial to both our host communities and our operations that may involve employee volunteers. These projects are developed in partnership with local organizations and community leaders to mobilize affected communities, which take sustainable ownership in the identification, design and delivery of project components.
  • Regional Development Initiatives (RDI): Large-scale projects bringing benefit to broad geographic regions. RDIs are typically administered by a non-profit organization (NGO) and may provide long-term and far-reaching socioeconomic benefits to regional populations.
  • Volunteerism: Programs typically in partnership with philanthropy or community investment projects that provide opportunities for our employees to contribute both time and financial resources to the local community.
