Being a Good Neighbor
In keeping with its desire to be a good citizen, a good employer and a good neighbour, Valero Energy relies on the participation of actors in the areas where it operates to develop an understanding of the issues of concern to them and to meet the expectations that come with its responsibilities as a citizen-oriented company. To do so, it has implemented five liaison committees made up of members of the community. These committees serve as special democratic forums where information can be exchanged and shared and where Valero teams and their stakeholders can engage in constructive dialogue.
Valero Energy also participates actively in the well-being and development of communities where it is established through its Social Investment and Community Engagement Program and by encouraging its employees' volunteer initiatives.
