Being A Good Neighbor
At MPC, we're proud of the things we do to support the communities in which we live.
Our employees are making a difference. We are building and maintaining wildlife habitats, being advocates for diversity and inclusion, helping communities rebuild after natural disasters, supporting local science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs and much more.
At MPC, community investment is an integral part of our business. We collaborate with our stakeholders to positively impact the communities where we operate throug h strategic investments that create measurable, lasting and sustaining value.
MPC and its employees provide support to 501(c)(3) non-profit and government-related organizations and agencies in the form of foundation grants, corporate contributions and sponsorships, and workplace giving and volunteerism. While we will accept requests from eligible organizations across our marketing area, preference will be given to communities where the company has a significant employee presence.
The Marathon Petroleum Foundation, Inc. strategically focuses its community investments on three core areas where it can make a positive, measurable impact: science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, environmental conservation/sustainability and public safety. MPC also provides limited support to community-based organizations to address local health, human and social service needs.
Human Rights and Core Values
At MPC, our core values, as found in our Code of Business Conduct and Citizenship Report, reinforced by our Board of Directors and executive management team, and promoted throughout our business and operations, are Health and Safety, Environmental Stewardship, Integrity, Corporate Citizenship and an Inclusive Culture. With these values as the foundation of our corporate culture, we work to make a positive difference in the communities where we have the privilege to operate. We respect the human, cultural and legal rights of all individuals and communities and promote the goals and principles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our commitment extends to the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, including indigenous people, regardless of race, color, national origin or income level.
Key policies and disclosures that reflect our commitments regarding human rights and corporate citizenship include:
- Core Values
- Code of Business Conduct
- Citizenship Reports
- Perspectives on Climate-Related Scenarios Report 2019
- HES&S Policy
- HES&S Beliefs
- Annual Reports on Form 10-K
- RC14001® Management System
These disclosures provide transparency into how we pursue our business objectives and manage the risks inherent to energy-sector companies such as ours.
As a predominantly U.S. domestic company, we recognize that our federal and state governments have the primary responsibility for protecting human rights and ensuring the rights of indigenous people within the U.S. There are robust permitting processes for energy facility and infrastructure projects that provide a means of public comment and participation, and judicial oversight is, of course, a hallmark of our domestic system of government. But we in business have a role as well. Marathon Petroleum Corporation is proud of our commitment to our core values and invite our investors and other stakeholders to review these important materials.
We understand the importance of protecting the environment. So we do what we can to reduce emissions, preserve energy and maintain wildlife habitats.
Diversity and Inclusion
At MPC, diversity isn't just something that's nice to have, it's a must. Because we know that having diverse backgrounds and perspectives makes us a better team.
