Employee Volunteerism

At ConocoPhillips, volunteerism is an important facet of our overall corporate citizenship program. Embedded in the SPIRIT of ConocoPhillips' core values is a strong commitment to building a legacy of trust and enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which we live and operate.

In spring 2010, continuous drought in South China's Yunnan Province made life for local people extremely difficult, with water shortages severe enough to threaten the basic food supplies, especially in schools. In response, ConocoPhillips China employees in Beijing and Tanggu raised RMB16,410 (US$2,400) through a company wide charity sale as well as used clothes and book donations to help the students at Wenquan School which is near to Lugu Lake.

In March and November 2010, volunteers also went to Wenquan School to visit the students there and provided ConocoPhillips’ Jelly Jam environmental education training. In August 2011, just before the school autumn semester started, staff in Tanggu donated RMB 2,579 (US400) and bought basic necessities for the Wenquan School.

Between 2010 July and December 2013, 30 COPC volunteers in Beijing joined the one-on-one education aid project and accumulatively donated RMB 157,283 (USD$25,000) to fund schooling for 20 students in poverty. The donation was made through Yongning Education Aid Center, a local grassroots non-profit organization.
