Top Energy Stocks For 2023

Chevron is looking to become a very different energy company, the company’s CEO told Jim Cramer recently.

In an “Executive Decision” segment on a recent ‘Mad Money” episode, Jim Cramer sat down with Mike Wirth, chairman and CEO of Chevron  (CVX) , on the heels of the company’s investor day where they laid out Chevron’s sustainability mission and goals. (Find out more about how you can profit from investment ideas on Real Money here.)

Wirth said that Chevron is a very different energy company today than when he joined 40 years ago. But Chevron is listening to shareholders that are demanding more environmental responsibility and increases in sustainability. That’s why Chevron has tripled its commitment to invest in faster-growing, lower-carbon energy sources.

You won’t see Chevron investing in wind or solar, however, because those areas are maturing. Instead, Chevron is investing in green hydrogen and green natural gas from dairies and landfills. The company has already partnered in a utility-scale green hydrogen project in Utah that will supply electricity to California, for example.
