Krogers a local grocery store always help in the people in the community and surrounding areas by keeping their prices low on items in the store, placing an app on your phone where you can make your grocery list, get coupons and discounts on items on sale without the app your grocery bill would be higher, this store would give food to the food banks to feed those that are not making enough money to pay bills and buy food especially the ones that are on a fixed income like the elderly and most that are not able to work by giving the food to feed the community that keeps the food from going to the landfills where it will be bad for the environment and ozone layer.

Similar to the environmental, health and safety concerns of gas and oil emissions in Nigeria; the Chevron Oil Refinery located in Richmond California has been under scrutiny from stakeholders for many years requesting grander accountability (Egbon, 2015) for the increased rates of asthma and respiratory sicknesses in local and broader communities. While these concerns weren’t enough, there has been no voices stronger heard until a damaging fire broke out in 2012, harming several workers and causing many local residences into the hospital with respiratory complications. Since the incident, local communities demanded accountability from Chevron Corporate. For over three years, the refinery had gone through three reports before the chemical safety board (CSB) approved the final report accepting accountability measures. Through sustainable accountability; chevron put fort its best efforts to alleviate harm to its workers, community and environment (“CSB Board Approves Chevron Refinery Final Report with a Unanimous Vote, n.d”). Being one of the largest polluters in Norther California, this has been no easy task for the company (“CSB Board Approves Chevron Refinery Final Report with a Unanimous Vote”, n.d.). In the article “CSB Board Approves Chevron Refinery Final Report with a Unanimous Vote” (n.d), it is stated that to meet the CSB’s tough approval; Chevron has/is obligated to ensure effective channeling of corporate oversight for internal safety direction and industry good practice, alongside Chevron – the County must/has put forth stricter Industrial Safety Ordinance’s and concrete regulatory controls, and community involvement towards the current safety culture review program.
