The global energy industry is subject to a set of complex, ever-evolving regulations. We engage on public policy issues relevant to Halliburton, our operations, and our workforce.

Transparency and oversight

Transparency is a corporate priority at Halliburton. We maintain practices that enable transparency and implement new practices that increase our transparency each year. Our Board's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews and approves political engagements such as Halliburton's lobbying activities, payments to trade associations, and political expenditures, as provided by the Halliburton Policies for Political Engagement.

The CPA-Zicklin Index assesses political engagement policies at S&P 500 companies for transparency and accountability. Companies scored on the CPA-Zicklin Index have their company policies and practices reviewed in 24 areas, including political contributions, trade associations, and political action committee (PAC) activities.

In 2023, Halliburton scored a 93 on the CPA-Zicklin Index with a raw score of 65 points. A score of 90 or above indicates robust disclosure and oversight and classifies a company as a Trendsetter, a status Halliburton obtained in 2022 and maintained in 2023. We are the only oilfield services company currently classified as a CPA-Zicklin Index Trendsetter.

Political activity at Halliburton

Halliburton does not use corporate dollars to make direct contributions to political candidates or parties. Halliburton's political action committee, the Halliburton Company Political Action Committee (HALPAC), is multi-candidate and non-partisan. You can learn more about HALPAC on the Public Policy page of the Halliburton website.


Sustainability means serving our customers, employees, stakeholders, and communities in an environmentally, socially, and ethically responsible way.



Globally, oil and gas continue to be critical sources of energy. The pursuit of a lower carbon future must account for their place in the global energy mix.



Our goal is to educate and inspire the next generation of Halliburton talent – because our people are at the heart of everything we do.
