Memberships
Member
Current

The Business Council is a voluntary association of business leaders whose members meet several times a year for the free exchange of ideas both among themselves and with thought leaders from many sectors. In its most fundamental form, the Council seeks to foster understanding through discussion. It promotes learning, best practice sharing and networking by its members with a view to making a contribution to our society, the global economy and to business generally. Since its founding more than 75 years ago, The Business Council membership has consisted of a group of current or former chief executive officers from a broad range of companies. All major industries are represented among the members of The Business Council. Because schedule demands on senior business executives are extensive, the Council provides an especially valuable opportunity to discuss major subjects in a broader ranging forum than is normally available in the course of business activities. As part of its process, the Council invites leaders in government, politics, academia, science, medicine, technology and other sectors to address the Council and to participate in its discussions. Council members hope that these discussions result in better understanding by their invited guests as well as by the members themselves. Today, the Council meets three times a year in a collegial atmosphere to share and explore ideas.As a gathering of peers from many fields, the Council is entirely an educational and deliberative forum. It never takes positions as an organization and does not advocate any policy or course of action. Individual members sometimes do present their own views in public discussions. But they do so as individuals, rather than as representatives of the Council.

One of the initiatives taken was to form a US-India CEO Forum, comprising selected CEOs from both countries, with a mandate to develop a road map for increased partnership and cooperation between the two countries at a business level.

ConocoPhillips has a time-honored tradition of placing safety, health and environmental stewardship at the top of our operating priorities. This will not change as we move forward as an independent company. Our technical capability, asset quality and scale, and financial strength are unmatched among independent upstream companies and uniquely position us to compete anywhere in the world. While North America is our home and provides the majority of our production, we are active in almost 30 countries and in a wide range of geologic and geographic settings, including some of the world’s most challenging areas. From the frozen Arctic to the arid desert, we have a proven track record of responsibly and efficiently exploring for and producing oil and natural gas. Our production streams include light oil, heavy oil, oil sands, natural gas liquids, conventional natural gas, coalbed methane, shale gas and oil, and liquefied natural gas (LNG). By combining our legacy strengths with the focus and culture of an independent company, we believe we can unlock potential for all our stakeholders by helping to meet the world’s energy needs.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation is created to maximize this volunteer–driven effort. The priorities: spending as little as possible to raise each dollar, and making sure every donation goes to the best research to find cures for kids fighting cancer. In its first year as an independent foundation, St. Baldrick’s continues to grow exponentially, raising more than $5.3 million. Proceeds go to the cooperative research of the Children's Oncology Group. The first St. Baldrick’s Fellow is also funded to train one of the next generation of childhood cancer researchers. St. Baldrick’s Summer Fellow awards give medical school or college students a summer to do some great research and potentially launch a new career. Also new: Our very own group of research rock stars — the Scientific Advisory Committee — is established at the second Research Priorities Summit. The first ever Pediatric Cancer Dream Team is formed. Funded jointly by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer, this four-year, $14.5 million grant sets out to cure some of the most hard-to-treat pediatric cancers. Our global search for cures continues as we fund the first St. Baldrick’s International Scholars, bringing pediatric cancer research expertise to low- and middle-income countries.
