corporate governance

促进强大的公司治理实践

The Board of Directors of Chevron directs the affairs of the corporation and is committed to sound principles of corporate governance. Documents included in this section provide ways for investors to understand the foundation of our corporate governance.

治理指南

这些指南已被董事董事会采用。指导方针与已重述的纳入证书,法律和董事会委员会章程,形成公司治理框架。

The Board of Directors oversees and provides policy guidance on the business and affairs of the Corporation. It monitors overall corporate performance, the integrity of the Corporation's financial controls and the effectiveness of its legal compliance and enterprise risk management programs. The Board oversees management and plans for the succession of key executives. The Board oversees the Corporation's strategic and business planning process. This is generally a year-round process culminating in full meeting Board reviews of the Corporation's updated Corporate Strategic Plan, its business plan, the next year's capital expenditures budget plus key financial and supplemental objectives.

董事会提名和治理委员会负责董事会的继任规划以及董事会及其委员会的关键领导角色。

Directors should have the highest professional and personal ethics and values, consistent with The Chevron Way and the Business Conduct and Ethics Code, and a commitment to building stockholder value. They should have business acumen and broad experience and expertise at the policy-making level in one or more of the areas of particular consideration below and should be able to provide insights and practical wisdom based on their experience or expertise. They should have sufficient time to effectively carry out their duties.

董事会提名和治理委员会每年审查董事会的整体构成,以评估目前在董事会和个别董事身上体现的技能和特点,以及董事会未来可能发现有价值的技能和特点,根据公司当前和预期的战略规划、经营要求和股东的长远利益。

在进行这项评估时,委员会特别考虑了作为首席执行官、高级执行官或重要业务运营领导者的商业领导经验;科学、技术、工程、研究或学术方面的专业知识;广泛了解政府、监管、法律或公共政策问题;财务、财务披露或财务会计方面的专业知识;有全球商务或国际事务经验;环境经验(包括气候变化问题方面的经验);上市公司董事会服务;以及年龄、性别和种族的多样性,以及考虑到董事会和公司当前和预金沙博彩期的需要,董事会认为适当的其他因素,以保持知识、经验、背景和金莎最新正规投注能力的平衡。

大多数董事会由独立董事组成,由纽约证券交易所所定义。要被视为“独立”,董事必须由董事会决定,经委员会提名和治理委员会和职业审议后的建议,与董事以外的公司没有重大关系。在确定没有物质关系的情况下,董事会遵守纽约证券交易所上市标准中的独立性的所有特定测试。此外,董事会还确定,如果相关交易在日常业务过程中进行相关交易,则在最后一家会计年度发生的雪佛州董事的关系是无关的,因此:

  • 另一个实体主任if business transactions in the most recent fiscal year between Chevron and that entity do not exceed $5 million or five percent of the receiving entity's consolidated gross revenues for that year, whichever is greater.
  • 另一个实体主任if Chevron's discretionary charitable contributions in the most recent fiscal year to that entity do not exceed $1 million or two percent of that entity’s gross revenues for that year, whichever is greater, and if the charitable contributions are consistent with Chevron’s philanthropic practices.
  • 仅因董事拥有与雪佛龙进行交易的一方的股权或有限合伙权益而产生的关系,只要该董事的所有权权益不超过该另一方的总股权或合伙权益的百分之二。

根据董事会提名和治理委员会的建议,董事会对每年的独立性进行肯定的确定。

章程规定,董事人数由董事会确定。董事会规模至少每年由董事会提名,治理委员会评估,并在适当时向董事会建议更改。如果任何提名人无法作为董事,董事会可以减少董事人数或选择替代品。

董事任期一年,直至选出继任者为止。

根据雪佛龙公司章程的规定,董事候选人每年在无争议选举中以多数票选出,在有争议选举中以多数票选出。任何被提名连任的董事,如果“赞成”该被提名人的当选的票数不超过“反对”该被提名人的当选的票数(不包括弃权),则应提交其辞职提议,供董事会提名和治理委员会审议。董事会提名和治理委员会应考虑所有相关事实和情况,包括董事资格、董事过去和未来对公司的贡献,董事会的整体组成,以及接受提出的辞职是否会导致公司不符合任何适用的规则或条例(包括纽约证券交易所上市要求和联邦证券法),并向董事会建议就此类辞职提议采取的行动。

董事会每年会在年会上提出股东选举的提名人员。年度会议之间,董事会可以选择一个或多个董事,直到下一次年会。董事会提名和治理委员会确定,调查并建议将前瞻性董事推向董事会,其目标是创造与股东长期利益对齐的知识,经验和多样性的平衡。股东可以通过撰写向公司秘书指定被提名人的姓名以及董事会成员资格的资格来推荐一名被提名人。所有建议都提请董事会提名和治理委员会注意。

董事将其其他董事会成员资格限于允许其个人情况,负责任履行其所有董事职责,没有董事在五个以上公开交易公司的董事会任职。还担任公开交易公司首席执行官的董事不得以超过三家公开交易公司(包括主任首席执行官的公司)提供服务。除非董事会提名和治理委员会决定这样做会削弱董事在公司委员会的服务会损害董事的服务,否则可能会维持超出这些限制的现状。为避免任何潜在的利益冲突,董事不会在任何额外的公共公司董事会上接受席位,而无需首先通知主管和董事会主席。董事会提名和治理委员会审查并批准外国国营利局职位的任何雇员总监选举。

在达到年龄74岁时,非雇员董事可能无法备受重选。员工董事曾不得作为董事担任董事一旦与公司的雇佣结束。员工董事的强制退休为65岁。

A non-Employee Director shall submit to the Board Nominating and Governance Committee a letter offering to resign if his or her principal occupation or business association changes substantially during his or her tenure as a Director. The Board Nominating and Governance Committee will review and recommend to the Board the action, if any, to be taken with respect to the offer of resignation.

董事会有四个常设委员会:审计,董事会提名和治理,管理赔偿和公共政策和可持续性。董事会委员会成员应在董事会提名和治理委员会的建议时每年委任。所有委员会仅由独立董事组成。此外,审计和管理赔偿委员会的成员符合纽约证券交易所上市标准下这些委员会任职的额外,加强的独立性标准。

每个常设委员会由一名独立董事担任主席,独立董事决定会议的议程、频率和时间长度,并在必要和适当的情况下,可以不受限制地接触管理层、信息和外部顾问。每个独立董事通常在一个或两个委员会任职。委员会成员任期错开,使董事可以定期轮换到不同的委员会。委员会主席的四至六年任期有利于委员会主席的轮换,同时保持有经验的领导。

每个常务委员会根据书面宪章运作,阐述了委员会的目的和责任以及委员会成员资格的职责。每个常务委员会定期评估其宪章的充分性,并建议酌情提名和治理委员会的变更。所有委员会定期向全体董事会报告其活动。

董事会提名和治理委员会每年审查董事会的领导结构以及规划领导转型,并建议酌情改变董事会。

独立董事每年选举一次董事长。独立董事每年对董事长和首席执行官合并或分立的适当性进行一次审查,审查内容与董事长的选择有关。独立董事可以推选公司首席执行官担任董事长。

当董事会选择首席执行官担任主席时,独立董事将每年从公司董事会任职的独立董事中选择一名主管主任。The Lead Director will chair all meetings of the Board in the Chairman’s absence, chair the executive sessions, lead non-management Directors in an annual discussion of the performance evaluation of the CEO as well as communicate that evaluation to the CEO, oversee the process for CEO succession planning, lead the Board’s review of the Board Nominating and Governance Committee’s assessment and recommendations from the Board self-evaluation process, lead the individual Director evaluation process, serve as a liaison between the Chairman and the independent Directors, consult with the Chairman on and approve agendas and schedules for Board meetings and other matters pertinent to the Corporation and the Board, be available to advise the committee chairs of the Board in fulfilling their designated roles and responsibilities, and participate in the interview process for prospective directors with the Board Nominating and Governance Committee. The Lead Director will have the authority to call meetings of the independent Directors and will be available as appropriate for consultation and direct communication with major stockholders.

Independent Directors meet in executive session at each regularly scheduled Board meeting. The sessions are chaired by the Lead Director if the CEO serves as Chairman; otherwise, the sessions are chaired by the Chairman. Any independent Director can request that an executive session be scheduled.

董事会预计所有董事以及官员和员工,展示最高标准的道德标准,与雪佛龙方式一致。董事会还预期董事,官员和雇员承认他们坚持公司的商业行为和道德规则。该公司拥有并将继续保持业务行为和道德规则。董事会审核委员会定期审核遵守本规则。

董事会及其委员会的诉讼程序和审议是保密的。每个董事将维持关于公司和其他实体的所有专有,特权或其他受保护的信息的机密性,董事与其作为董事有关,除非法律授权或要求披露。

每年,牵头主任将领导独立董事对所有高级管理人员的候选人审查,以评估可用于这些职位的候选人,并了解所用的发展计划,以加强候选人的技能和资格。

继任计划过程包括审议普通课程继任,如果计划的晋升和退休,并规划首席执行官或其他高级管理层意外的情况意外无法履行其职位的职责。

非雇员董事获得的薪酬具有竞争力,将奖励与企业业绩和股东回报挂钩,并有助于增加对公司股票的所有权。薪酬由现金和股权组成,目标是提供50%以上的股权薪酬。公司没有为非雇员董事制定退休计划。雇员董事不因其作为董事的服务而获得额外报酬。董事会提名和治理委员会定期审查并建议董事会薪酬的变动,以保持薪酬总额具有竞争力和适当性。

Directors are encouraged and provided opportunities to talk directly to any member of management or any other employee regarding any questions or concerns the Director may have. Directors interact with members of management and other employees in connection with Board meetings, briefings, dinners, receptions, and tours of company operations and facilities or at the request of a Director.

公司拥有,并将继续维持含有书面材料,口头介绍和现场访问的定向计划。该公司在各组织提供的延事持任的董事教育机会和所有董事都鼓励所有董事,以各组织提供的持任董事。该公司还通过董事会和委员会会议和董事会简报的介绍提供正在进行的董事教育。

董事会和每个董事会委员会每年进行自我评估。董事会提名和治理委员会监督这一自我评估过程,并评估全委员会的表现。作为评估的一部分,委员会还邀请对个人董事履行的投入。委员会建议改变改善董事会,董事会委员会和个人董事的有效性。委员会利用年度董事会评估来收集意见,协助委员会的评估和建议。

The Board annually reviews the CEO performance. To conduct this review, the Board Nominating and Governance and Management Compensation Committee chairpersons gather and consolidate input from all Directors. The consolidated input is reviewed at a meeting in executive session with all independent Directors after which the chairpersons present the results of the review to the CEO.

The Board expects all Directors and executive officers to display confidence in the Corporation by ownership of a significant amount of stock. The Board has structured its compensation to strive to result in ownership of at least 7 times the annual cash retainer amount or 15,000 shares of stock or stock units after five years of service as a Director. The Board Nominating and Governance Committee periodically assesses the guidelines and Directors' ownership relative to these guidelines, and makes recommendations as appropriate. The Board has also established stock ownership guidelines for executive officers of the Corporation. Targets are based on a multiple of base salary: CEO 6 times; Vice Chairman, Executive Vice Presidents and Chief Financial Officer 4 times; all other executive officers 2 times. Executives are expected to achieve targets within 5 years of assuming their positions. The Management Compensation Committee periodically assesses the guidelines and the executive officers' ownership relative to these guidelines, and makes recommendations as appropriate.

董事会和各董事会委员会有权随时聘请外部财务、法律或其他顾问。

董事长与首席董事协调确定董事会会议的日程安排,并决定董事会会议的时间和长度。除定期会议外,经适当通知,可随时召开临时董事会会议,以满足公司的具体需要。年度股东大会通常与定期召开的董事会会议同时召开。董事会希望所有董事定期出席董事会会议和股东年会,除非有情有可原的情况。

董事长与首席董事协商确定每次董事会会议的议程,同时考虑其他董事和管理层的意见和建议。董事会还为额外的会前材料提供投入。他们随时向适当的委员会主席提出建议。董事会会议议程为公司主要业务的运营负责人向董事会作陈述提供了机会。

Each year the Board reviews the long-term strategic plan for the Corporation and the principal issues that the Corporation expects to face in the future.

委员会每年至少致力于一项董事会会议,专注于战略规划。此外,各种战略要素是在每个常规董事会会议上讨论的,以及董事会委员会的会议。为了评估对战略计划的绩效,董事会在全年期间收到关于进展和执行的定期更新,并在全年提供指导和方向。

董事会将重新审议未经董事会支持的、在达到法定人数的年度会议上获得过半数投票的股东提案。对提案采取的行动将及时向股东报告。

董事会将获得任何股东权利计划的股东批准。董事会将在实施股东权益计划前获得批准,但下列有限情况除外。如果大多数独立董事认为,推迟股东权益计划的生效,直至获得股东对该计划的批准,将损害公司及其大多数普通股股东的最佳利益,然后,董事会可以在获得股东批准之前实施权利计划。在这种情况下,董事会将在股东权益计划通过后的第一次股东大会上向股东提交股东权益计划,以供批准。如果未获得股东批准,权利计划将在选举检查员证明投票后30天内终止。
