Management Systems & Performance
Antero is implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) based on the ISO 14001:2015 standard to efficiently address environmental risks, minimize environmental impacts, and ensure compliance with all legal requirements. Antero has a long history of giving back to the communities in which we operate; it is our history, and we want to live up to it by continuously improving our environmental stewardship. The EMS is a constantly evolving tool for Antero.
The underlying principles of Antero’s EMS has been adopted throughout the company and has the support of management and employees. Clear and effective practices are in place, and compliance with those practices, and regulatory standards, define how Antero does business. Through the EMS, the identification of environmental risks that may impact our communities are paired with the goal of bringing the best return for our stakeholders, ensuring that Antero has in place the necessary resources for projects and integrates environmental matters into our business planning.
In 2018, Antero focused on reformulating several compliance workflows, updating environmental compliance Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and improving inspection programs and operational controls to ensure regulatory compliance.
This year, Antero will continue to make improvements to the EMS by focusing our efforts on measuring overall environmental performance. We are developing a robust set of metrics to measure environmental performance where it matters and will use that information to set targets established by Antero’s Senior Management.
