Our Communities

Being a good corporate citizen means being a good neighbor.

At Tesoro, we measure our success not only by the bottom line, but also by how well we perform as a responsible corporate citizen in the communities where our employees live and work. Volunteering and charitable giving are woven into our corporate culture.

We strive to make an impact in three primary areas:

  • Community Vitality – We aim to make communities stronger and more dynamic by helping people and improving their opportunities in life.
  • Education – We focus on giving students the tools they need to succeed and grow, both in knowledge and character.
  • Environment – We help better the lives of people for generations to come by preserving natural resources and promoting clean surroundings.

Read Tesoro’s 2012 Social Responsibility Report for more information on how we deliver shared value to the communities where we live and work.

In 2012, Tesoro and its employees:

  • Donated
    more than $1.9 million to local United Ways and United Way agencies through a series of annual workplace giving campaigns
  • Dedicated
    more than 25,000 volunteer hours to varied activities benefiting our communities
