Collaborating in Our Communities
Producing affordable energy in a socially responsible way requires a strong network of relationships built on integrity and trust.

Social responsibility, collaboration and stakeholder engagement are critical to our ability to develop and maintain meaningful relationships, operate efficiently, create long-term value and return capital to shareholders.

Our vice president of Health, Environment, Safety, Security & Corporate Sustainability is accountable for Marathon Oil’s overall sustainability efforts. This leader works closely with our senior vice president and general counsel who is responsible for our governance, stakeholder engagement efforts and social investments. The Health, Environmental, Safety and Corporate Responsibility (HES&CR) Committee of our board of directors provides oversight of our social responsibility and sustainability efforts and meets at least quarterly. Once a year our full board receives an update on our social investments.

Engaging with Stakeholders
Developing meaningful relationships is core to our business

  • Supported local communities, including the Three Affiliated Tribes in North Dakota’s Bakken region, by providing personal protective equipment (PPE) and food bank donations.
