Emissions

Antero is focused on managing and reducing its greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions. We participate in voluntary emission reduction programs, report our emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), including methane, criteria and hazardous air pollutants, and continuously evaluate the feasibility of emission control and mitigation technologies to be implemented across our operations.

In 2019, we reported our GHG and methane emissions to our management and board of directors. The commitment and oversight of our executives and board of directors drive our actions to reduce and mitigate emissions and climate-related risks. We reported a climate-related risk discussion in our Form 10-K.

We set a goal of reducing our methane leak loss rate by 50%, to under 0.025%, and reducing our GHG intensity by 10% by 2025. We also endeavor to reach net zero Scope 1 carbon emissions by 2025. These goals will be achieved through the implementation of operational improvements, work practices, technologies, and through the purchase of carbon credits.

In 2020, we plan to integrate climate-related risks into our existing risk management system and align our disclosures with the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guidelines and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards for the Oil and Gas Exploration and Production sector.
