Good Neighbor Pledge : Pledge

We Pledge

As we provide clean energy to America, the Energy Council and its members pledge to:

  • Protect public safety;
  • Protect the environment;
  • Respect the property rights of others.

We will be a good neighbor through the use of best management practices and appropriate technology.

We believe that being a good neighbor means open communication and we will work to improve understanding between Energy Council members and the landowners impacted by our operations.

We will work in a respectful, collaborative manner with the public officials and agencies that represent the community to assure continued responsible development of the valuable natural resources that benefit all Americans.
