Statement regarding Human Rights and Core Values
At MPC, our core values, as found in our Code of Business Conduct and Citizenship Report, reinforced by our Board of Directors and executive management team, and promoted throughout our business and operations, are Health and Safety, Environmental Stewardship, Integrity, Corporate Citizenship and an Inclusive Culture. With these values as the foundation of our corporate culture, we work to make a positive difference in the communities where we have the privilege to operate. We respect the human, cultural and legal rights of all individuals and communities and promote the goals and principles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our commitment extends to the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, including indigenous people, regardless of race, color, national origin or income level.
Key policies and disclosures that reflect our commitments regarding human rights and corporate citizenship include:
These disclosures provide transparency into how we pursue our business objectives and manage the risks inherent to energy-sector companies such as ours.
As a predominantly U.S. domestic company, we recognize that our federal and state governments have the primary responsibility for protecting human rights and ensuring the rights of indigenous people within the U.S. There are robust permitting processes for energy facility and infrastructure projects that provide a means of public comment and participation, and judicial oversight is of course a hallmark of our domestic system of government. But we in business have a role as well. MPC is proud of our commitment to our core values and invite our investors and other stakeholders to review these important materials.
