Responsibility - Good Governance

Good Governance

We take seriously our responsibility to deliver necessary energy to the world, and we maintain our core values of integrity and trust, servant leadership and open communication in all of our business activities. We believe how we do business is as important as what we do, and we invite you to read our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for more information on our values and how Anadarko employees put those values into practice every day. We have structured our organization to reflect our commitment to sound governance:

  • With the exception of our CEO, the Board of Directors is completely independent.
  • In 2013, we enhanced the duties of the Independent Lead Director.
  • Anadarko is 83 percent institutionally held.

As a global operator, we abide by all international, federal, state, regional and municipal laws and regulations, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). 

Additionally, Anadarko is committed to sound and efficient operation of our sub-surface exploration and production, as well as our above-ground facilities, resources and communities. We invite you to learn more about our risk management practicesapproach to human rights and the leadership committees that continually evaluate and research these topics.
