Focused on Accountability

Acting in an ethical manner to protect our people, the environment and the community is central to who we are as a company. This starts by having a rigorous system of corporate governance driving accountability at all levels —​ accountability that is supported by systems designed to uphold high standards for conduct. Our dedication to excellence in environmental, social, governance (ESG) and business performance is driven by our core values. These values define us and guide management and employee decision-making every day.

We are focused on continuous improvement and committed to executing on our business strategies while maximizing shareholder returns by operating responsibly and reducing risk. In 2019, Chesapeake established an ESG Advisory Board made up of senior leaders across multiple disciplines including Compliance, Legal, HSER, HR, Internal Audit, Investor Relations and Operations, who are focused on ESG concerns as they relate to our operations, strategy​​ and business performance. To ensure ongoing attention to the monitoring, management and reporting of major ESG issues, this group meets quarterly, providing counsel and direction for the company on major ESG issues. In addition, this group is charged with validating and assuring the company's ESG disclosures, reporting processes and publications.
