Accountability and Governance

Managing risk and doing the right thing are essential parts of our company's culture. Our company leaders believe in promoting a culture of best ethical business practices. We know that success relies on both corporate and personal responsibility to protect our employees and communities and preserve the environment.


Antero’s Board of Directors has ultimate oversight of the company’s operational performance and ethical conduct. This includes managing the company’s risk mitigation and ESG efforts. The Board ESG Committee provides guidance relating to the identification and evaluation or risks and opportunities related to the environment and climate change, health and safety, and social and political trends.

"Climate change is an issue that our Board cares about deeply. In 2020, to further address climate change impacts, Antero established a set of bold climate goals. The Board and the Board ESG Committee are focused on helping the company reach these targets and managing the company’s climate risk for the benefit of all Antero stakeholders."

-Vicky Sutil, ESG Committee Chair

ESG Committee Focus

Our Board's ESG committee plays a vital role in guiding Antero and the Board in matters related to environmental and climate change risks and opportunities, health and safety programs, and social and political trends and concerns. In addition, the ESG committee provides valuable counsel to the Board and management on significant public policy issues.

Adhering to the Highest Ethical Standards

Our core principle is to conduct our business with honesty and integrity, adhering to the highest legal and ethical standards. To guide our actions, we have established a Corporate Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. It sets out the expectations we have for our employees and business partners to consistently exercise good judgment and uphold our ethical standards.

Political Engagement

We believe in the importance of transparency when it comes to our lobbying efforts and political contributions. It is our policy not to make political contributions in support of any party or candidate in any U.S. election, whether at the federal, state, or local level, with a few exceptions. However, we do encourage our employees to exercise their right to participate in the political process based on their personal beliefs and values.

Risk Management

We prioritize the identification and management of risks to ensure the safety of our employees and the protection of our company resources. Our risk management process includes identifying, mitigating, tracking, monitoring, and involving the Board. We undertake regular reviews of both short-term and long-term risks, involving stakeholders at all levels of our organization.

Locking Down on Cybersecurity

We recognize the evolving nature of cybersecurity threats and are committed to assessing and adopting new processes, equipment, and resources to enhance the safety of our operations. One of our key strategies is to invest in comprehensive training programs for our employees. Additionally, we encourage a proactive approach to cybersecurity throughout our organization.

Partnering with the Community

We recognize the value of contributing to the growth and value of our local communities. As part of our commitment, we prioritize purchasing goods and services from local contractors and suppliers. By engaging local contractors and suppliers, we not only support the local economy but also develop mutually beneficial partnerships.
