Corporate Responsibility Report 2017-2018
- Health and Safety
At Southwestern Energy, operating responsibly is built into our Formula. We are committed to creating Value+ for our stakeholders. The + sets us apart. Beyond generating financial gains, we are focused on creating long-term, sustainable value. That means an unwavering commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of our employees and contractors; protecting the environment where we work and live; maintaining a respectful workplace; creating positive impacts in the communities where we operate and live; and of course operating according to strong ethical and governance principles. Our long-term success is reliant not just on what we do, but how we do it.
SWN’s corporate responsibility strategy follows our Formula. In early 2018, we updated our assessment of SWN’s key corporate responsibility issues after interviewing a variety of internal and external stakeholders.
SWN employees work side-by-side with our contractors as ONE Team with one goal: zero safety incidents. We achieved outstanding safety performance in 2017.
SWN strives to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency in our operations. We met both our freshwater neutral goal and our methane emissions goal in 2017, for the second year in a row.
SWN has a track record of creating a positive impact and generating economic opportunities in the areas where we operate. We have a 24-hour community concern hotline and ensure all concerns are addressed promptly and effectively.
SWN’s corporate culture fosters a healthy and respectful workplace, with opportunities for advancement. In 2017, we launched a training program called Respect in the Workplace that focuses on appropriate and inappropriate behaviors and the benefits of a diverse workforce.
We report a range of health and safety, environmental, workforce and community data.
