As the oldest and most storied energy company in the region, we were focused on ESG performance long before the modern vernacular. Sustaining our local communities through environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and strong corporate governance is a direct extension of our mission, and reflects our long-standing goal to make a lasting and meaningful impact in our local communities, and beyond.
We favor impactful, tangible, measurable ESG metrics and performance. We believe ESG performance is better managed through a focused-based effort rather than a scale-based model. In short, we are all about results over rhetoric.
We take great pride in where we’re from. To us, the Appalachian basin is more than the place we do business, it’s been our home for over 155 years. Our company leadership and workforce is composed of home-grown talent, and our approach to ESG aligns with CNX’s long-standing presence in the communities across Appalachia.
Given the industry’s momentum in recent years, a reckoning is occurring within the basin on several fronts, including ESG criteria. The time has never been better to highlight our many tangible accomplishments and reaffirm our commitments to sound governance, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. Our approach to ESG is simple: we work to ensure the long-term economic and social well-being of our local communities, and commit to measurable, transparent goals.
In the spirit of continuous improvement, and to deliver on our mission to create long-term per share value for all of our stakeholders, CNX has announced the following ESG initiatives for the year 2021: Environmental Stewardship, Social Responsibility, Corporate Governance.
