2021 Highlights


Inspiring Houston Students Through STEM

Halliburton volunteers attended a virtual GoIT event hosted by Tata Consultancy Services, Aldine Independent School District (ISD), and Humble ISD in Houston, Texas. At this event, organizers challenged students to design a STEM-oriented app to solve a specific issue in their community, based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. As students formulated and prepared their ideas, our volunteers asked the students probing questions intended to sharpen their critical thinking skills, inspire new ideas, broaden perspectives, or hone details. Students then presented their ideas to a panel of judges.

Preparing for the First Day of School

Youth Engaged in Service (YES) Prep is a network of more than 20 high-performing public charter schools in the Houston, Texas area that aims to boost the academic performance and success of children from underserved communities. In the weeks leading up to the first day of school at North Forest Elementary — and the first-ever day of school at this brand-new campus — Halliburton volunteers helped teachers and staff deliver books to classrooms, sort supplies, set up the library, and establish the car-rider-identification system so that the campus would be ready to welcome its first students. Shortly after the first day of school, Halliburton sponsored a catered lunch for teachers and staff in recognition of the important work they do in educating our community’s youth.

Celebrating Earth Day and Sustainability Day Around the World

Globally, to mark Earth Day and Sustainability Day, our employees participated in various environmental initiatives, including:

  • In Deckers, Colorado, Halliburton volunteers worked with the National Forest Foundation to clean up trash along the South Platte River before the onset of winter. This initiative was part of many efforts to improve trails and recreation areas in the Denver area.

  • Halliburton volunteers in Houston, Texas, planted 25 15-gallon trees at Lakeshore Elementary School. We completed this work in partnership with Trees for Houston, a nonprofit organization dedicated to planting, protecting, and promoting trees throughout the city. Since we began working with Trees for Houston in 2018, Halliburton volunteers and our Company’s financial gifts have contributed to the planting of approximately 2,000 trees.

  • In the United Arab Emirates, Halliburton volunteers added greenery to common areas of our facilities; launched a campaign to encourage colleagues to consider how to reduce their consumption of electricity, water, and paper; recycled waste materials; and conducted a chemicals hazard hunt that involved reviewing packaging, SDSs, and emergency equipment for various hazards.

  • In the municipality of Rennesoy, Norway, Halliburton volunteers spent a day cleaning up marine garbage, including plastics and netting, from the shoreline. The team removed several bags full of waste.

Specifically for Earth Day, Halliburton encouraged employees around the world to show us what they did for our environment to mark this occasion. We then created a video of their submissions.


Making Highly Specialized Medical Care Accessible to Underprivileged Children

Halliburton donated $33,845 to Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital and Research Center in Pune, India, which provided underprivileged children with desperately needed medical care. These children suffer from life-threatening conditions such as cancer and heart disease, as well as other complex medical conditions such as epilepsy, neonatal issues, and ortho deformities. Often, these conditions require prolonged treatments, including highly specialized surgeries. In 2021, our financial contribution helped 40 children obtain medical treatment. Since the program’s inception in 2015, Halliburton has helped 238 children.

Delivering Meals to Food-Insecure People

Halliburton employees volunteered with the Houston Food Bank to help combat food insecurity in the community. Our volunteers inspected, sorted, and packaged food to create more than 12,000 meals. The Houston Food Bank is the largest food bank in the U.S. in terms of size and distribution. It serves more than 1,800 community partners — including food pantries, soup kitchens, meal sites, and shelters — in 18 counties in Southeast Texas.

Our Houston-area employees also participated in the 2021 Juice Box Challenge to support Kids’ Meals Inc.’s Summer Meal Program, which delivers meals to children living in food-insecure homes. Employees donated 13,784 juice boxes and volunteered to help with the Kids’ Meals food distribution.

Connecting High School Students to STEM Careers

At Zanesville High School in Zanesville, Ohio, Halliburton launched the Challenge Program to improve students’ academic performance and to generate excitement about their potential in a future STEM career. In this program, students must meet certain academic marks. Halliburton selects winners in five categories: attendance, STEM, community service, academic improvement, and academic excellence. The winners receive a $500 scholarship to use at the school of their choice. Since the program’s introduction in 2016, Halliburton has contributed more than $20,000.

Helping Protect Surrounding Communities from an Active Volcano in the Caribbean

Halliburton supports the University of the West Indies (UWI) Seismic Research Centre, which is the agency responsible for monitoring earthquakes and volcanoes in the English-speaking islands of the Eastern Caribbean, including Trinidad and Tobago. For more than 60 years, the Centre has operated the largest earthquake- and volcano-monitoring initiative in the Caribbean, and promotes geologic hazard awareness, contingency planning for natural disasters, and development of early- warning systems. 

Prompted by the Le Soufrière volcano’s sudden return to activity on the island of St. Vincent, Halliburton donated three borehole tiltmeters to the Centre to bolster ongoing monitoring of the volcano. Installed along the flanks of the volcano, the tiltmeters capture and deliver data in near real time to the Centre’s observatory. The tiltmeters will improve sensitivity to magma movement, and the information yielded will facilitate faster response times to deformation changes and also advance early-warning capabilities.
