At SWN being a good neighbor is how we do business, and we have a long track record of having a positive impact in the communities where we work and live. We become part of the community by proactively engaging with and listening to residents and local leaders, which enables us to effectively provide support and address local concerns. These efforts are vital to our success.
Regular engagement with community members enables us to keep residents informed about our activities and helps us find opportunities to add value to communities as well as understand and respond to local concerns.
Being accessible and responsive is central to being a good neighbor. We have a 24-hour community concern hotline and use a companywide routing and tracking system to ensure we respond promptly and effectively.
SWN’s operations have generated billions of dollars in direct and indirect economic benefits for the communities where we operate. We hire locally and support education in petroleum technology and the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) to develop the local workforce.
Giving and Volunteering
We have a passion for philanthropy that supports our communities. Through our Social Energy strategy, we take an integrated approach to meeting local needs across six focus areas: education, well-being, emergency response, clean environment, family focus and support of military service members.
