Our Corporate Responsibility Reporting

The information in these Responsibility webpages provides insight into SWN’s corporate responsibility (CR) strategy, goals, operations and performance in 2019 and serves as our annual corporate responsibility report. The content was prepared by our cross-disciplinary Corporate Responsibility reporting team, with assistance from subject matter experts from across the company. It was then reviewed and approved by SWN’s executive leadership team and the Health, Safety, Environment and Corporate Responsibility Committee of the Board of Directors.

Since 2015, we have published an annual corporate responsibility report in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. Our reporting is also guided by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s standards for Oil and Gas Exploration and Production, the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures and several other reporting frameworks and scorecards relevant for our industry. This report aligns with the GRI Standards requirements at the Core level. (A separate appendix contains the GRI index and reporting boundaries.)

We are pleased to share our latest programs and performance, and we welcome your feedback.

  1. Methane intensity or methane leak/loss rate (mass percentage) is calculated by dividing the gigagrams of methane emissions by the oil and gas gross production (cubic feet converted to gigagrams).
