The recent nomination of Chevron Philippines to the US State Department's Award for Corporate Excellence (ACE) draws opposition from environmental groups, who say this nomination ignores Chevron's negative impacts on the public health and environment of communities in the Philippines and around the world.
(San Francisco, CA) – Chevron Corporation’s recent nomination to the State Department’s annual Award for Corporate Excellence (ACE) for its Philippine-based operations was met with opposition from US and Philippine-based environmentalists.
