Texaco

"Clean Up Ecuador"

About the campaign

Chevron, the US Oil company, is embroiled in a lawsuit in the Ecuadorian Amazon, the roots of which date back over 40 years to Texaco's oil operations in the region. The suit alleges, in essence, that Texaco (now owned by Chevron), which produced oil in Ecuador from 1964 to 1990, caused the largest oil-related environmental catastrophe in the world. The region's soil and water are contaminated with toxic chemicals due to Texaco's completely inadequate waste management practices, implemented to save money and with the expectation that the company would never be taken to task for them.
