Our Commitment to ESG
A Message from Our CEO
Ironwood has a long-standing commitment to being good stewards of our human, environmental, and operational resources. We elevated our efforts in 2022 by designating an executive-level curator for Ironwood’s ESG efforts and creating a cross-functional ESG Steering Committee. Our operations team’s actions significantly reduced our carbon footprint, and our security team implemented best practices and innovative technology minimizing Ironwood’s exposure to bad actions in cyberspace. In 2022 we began measuring and reporting complete Scope 2 emissions, expanded our biodiversity efforts and augmented our social and governance endeavors. We saw an 84% reduction in methane emissions, leading to an incredible 66% reduction in overall GHG emissions. To support our low emissions aspirations, we incorporated state-of-the-art emissions reducing equipment into our project design and established advanced processes for capturing data required for potential future certification. We are looking ahead to potential strategic partnerships for carbon management solutions. As always, the Ironwood team maintained our focus on the safety and wellbeing of our employees and community. We’re committed to our people and the neighborhoods in which we live and work. To this end, we increased our charitable contributions by a factor of seven from 2021. We hired a Regulatory Compliance Manager to sharpen our focus on safety, transparency, and sustainability. We made great strides in cybersecurity, implementing a full-scale audit of the technology deployed across our field operations, allowing us to identify and address potential vulnerabilities. At Ironwood, we realize that sustainability is crucial to human existence; we also recognize that the world’s economy cannot operate effectively without hydrocarbons. Our business is connecting energy supply with energy demand, and we constantly explore cutting-edge, responsible ways of adding value to our customers and stakeholders. I’m proud of the way our team operates with our obligation to safety, security, the environment, and our corporate mission, vision, and values top of mind, and pleased to share our 2022 ESG progress.
