Thriving Communities, Future Generations and Ecosystems

We are focused on helping communities become more resilient and prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century as healthy, safe, equitable and economically vibrant places. 

Partnerships for Stronger Results

Globally, we are connecting in new ways to drive scale and speed on solutions to humanity’s biggest challenges. Locally, we are addressing the distinct needs of each community where we have physical presence, with priorities determined by those who live and work within a region.

Holistic Engagement

As representatives of the energy industry, our participation in chambers of commerce, economic development groups and related forums creates more effective collaboration with local leaders in community planning.

Community Service Toward Shared Goals

Our employees have been making an impact in causes close to home for decades.  We are making strides in reaching greater alignment with community partners by establishing shared goals for more meaningful, measurable results. 

Action Areas

At every step of community engagement, we are collaborating with experts in the nonprofit sector and relevant stakeholders to leverage our combined expertise and ideas for stronger outcomes locally and in global society. Whether through charitable grants, local investments or community service, the following represents our action areas and a few of our community partners in 2018.

FIRST Global 
180+ Countries

FIRST Global (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) levels STEM opportunities by targeting regions and populations that have traditionally lacked access to education, with a special focus on females and underserved populations. Through robotics and competition, youth are tasked with finding solutions to world challenges tied to access to water, energy, security, medicine, food, and education. In 2018, with a $250,000 contribution from the Baker Hughes Foundation, we launched a partnership with FIRST Global, sharpening our focus on causes where our charitable contributions, expertise and volunteers can serve the global society in the most impactful way.

“By providing us with STEM tools, we develop the capacity to develop ourselves, transform our communities, and fight global challenges.”  – Student from FIRST Global Country Team Chad

The Nature Conservancy 
70+ Countries

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is a global nonprofit organization with a mission to conserve the land and waters on which all life depends. Guided by science, TNC creates on-the-ground solutions for the world’s toughest environmental challenges across six continents. In 2018, the Baker Hughes Foundation made a $250,000 commitment to TNC to amplify its work on Natural Climate Solutions, specifically around wetland conservation.

Wetlands are some of the most important biodiverse areas in the world, but experiencing rapid decline. Many of the challenges of the future can be met by conserving and sustainably using wetlands, such as for disaster resilience, food and water security, community health, economic livelihood and carbon storage.
