The orbital patterns and planet positions that influence predictable cyclical climate patterns documented throughout the Earth’s history are well understood. The relationship between these cycles of warming and cooling and atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases (GHG), particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), however, is less clear. Scientific research continues to improve understanding of climate patterns and sensitivities to human activities. At Anadarko, we recognize the need to reduce GHG emissions, particularly CO2 and methane (CH4), which have emerged as concerns in the global community.
In 2004, Anadarko formed a Climate Change Committee that reports to the Board of Director’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to organize, evaluate and take action on climate change and GHG issues.
Anadarko is committed to responsible environmental stewardship. We frequently go above and beyond regulatory compliance by implementing industry-leading practices and technology, while continually looking for innovative ways to minimize the overall environmental impacts of our activities, including the reduction of GHG emissions.
