Political Participation

Our participation in the political process reflects strict adherence to high ethical standards and Chesapeake’s core values of respect, integrity and trust. All company funds for political expenditures or lobbying in any form or on behalf of the company are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Nominating, Governance and Social Responsibility Committee of our Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the company’s political spending, which is used to advance business goals and Chesapeake interests.

Chesapeake complies with all federal, state and local laws that require disclosure of political contributions and lobbying activities. We file reports of receipts and contributions for our Federal Political Action Committee (Fed PAC) as required with the Federal Election Commission.

For more information regarding political participation, please review our 2015 Political Activity Report.
