Community Investment in Malaysia
ConocoPhillips prides itself on being a great neighbor and a responsible citizen in the communities where we live and work.
Our investment in the community is driven by relationships and to build these relationships we work with charitable organizations to identify community needs, and to deliver strategic programs that meet these needs, and support our business outcomes.
Our Community Investments are organized within the following pillars: education, health and safety, natural resources, arts, civic, social services and disaster relief. In Malaysia, ConocoPhillips seeks to understand community needs and to support initiatives that meet those needs. Over the years, ConocoPhillips Malaysia has been supporting community initiatives across the country to support charities, education and community programs under the different pillars.
