Delivering a lower-carbon future the right way, every day.
At Southwestern Energy, strong and responsible corporate governance practices are embedded into everything we do.
Fostering an inclusive environment.
Southwestern Energy strives to meet the highest standards for managing risk and operating responsibly across the enterprise, including our approach to corporate governance, ethics and integrity, CCR, governance, enterprise risk management and cybersecurity.
Diversity in gender ethnicity or nationality within our Board of Directors.
Experience in health, safety, environment and/or corporate responsibility among our directors.
Incentive of executive annual compensation linked to ESG goals in 2021.
Elected annually by shareholders, our Board of Directors includes four committees: HSE&CR, Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and the Nominating & Governance Committee. In 2021, our Board met 15 times and had a 100% attendance record for the annual meeting, Board meetings and Committee meetings.
Ethics & Integrity
In 2021, 100% of all employees and full-time contingent workers completed the required ethics training courses. Also last year, we received 32 total complaints via our ethics hotline, which enables employees to anonymously submit issues or concerns — all of which were assessed and resolved.
Corporate Responsibility Oversight & Enterprise Risk Management
In 2021, we continued to advance our ESG policies and oversight, expanding ESG-related metrics in our executives’ bonus compensation by adding a methane intensity goal. Also in 2021, the weighting of ESG components increased from 10% to 15% of total bonus compensation.
