Background

EQT Corporation is the largest producer of natural gas in the United States, with an emphasis in the Appalachian Basin. With production operations in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, EQT is a technology-driven leader in advanced horizontal drilling and is committed to working safely and responsibly to minimize impacts to the environment.

As part of its continued evolution through strategic growth, collaboration and advanced technological capabilities, EQT searched for a partner to help identify the most important sustainability topics for its many stakeholder groups. Based on our expertise in sustainability strategy and disclosure services, EQT engaged BrownFlynn, an ERM Group company, in 2017 and has continued to use our services since.

Quotation mark BrownFlynn made the process easy and the results simple to understand—and, in turn, they spent ample time working with us to determine the correct path forward with the information gleaned from the assessment. The expertise and professionalism of the BrownFlynn team were invaluable to our Company and we look forward to working with them again. Quotation mark

Our Approach

Our team helped update EQT’s 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, which was based on the same topics prioritized in the 2017 materiality assessment.

Applying proven methodologies and strategic frameworks, we are currently working on the company’s 2019 CSR Report microsite. The CSR Report, scheduled for release later this year, will also include relevant disclosures from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), further strengthening the content and rigor of the company’s public environmental, social and governance disclosures.

Benefits and Value

ERM's Sustainability Strategy and Disclosure team help executives in any industry understand the stakeholder expectations and strategic relevance of managing their environmental, social and governance impacts. We help clients disclose business value that is difficult to quantify and adapt their centralized business practices or business models to create long-term value.
