Looking forward we will continue to strengthen the quality of our reporting as we progress in our sustainability journey. With each passing year we will continue to share more data and accomplishments.

I joined Cheniere as its SVP of PGPA less than two years ago. It has been one of my first and highest priorities since joining the company — as well as a priority of our board, executive leadership and employees — to collect and share with you key information that affirms our commitment to environmentally, socially and financially sustainable operations.

In some ways, we have a major advantage in doing this — our vision statement is to provide clean, secure and affordable energy to the world. In other words, we make money by making the world’s overall energy mix cleaner.

We are demonstrating that our commitment to sustainability goes beyond vision statements. That’s why in 2018 we adopted our first Climate and Sustainability Principles:

  • Science
  • Operation excellence
  • Supply chain
  • Transparency

On the last principle of transparency, this report is part of that effort. We believe our operations are of such caliber that it would only benefit us to provide clear, substantive disclosures.

We assembled dozens of individuals across Cheniere to develop this inaugural report, which includes a significant quantity of data on our company, our reportable emissions, our challenges and our opportunities.

As our CEO Jack Fusco said in his introductory letter, this report is just our first. We have shaped it to align with leading sustainability reporting guidelines such as those of the IPIECA, GRI and SASB, and have included a number of disclosures that align with the recommendations of the TCFD. Moving forward, we will continue to strengthen the quality of our reporting as we progress in our sustainability journey. We hope that with each passing year we will have more data and accomplishments to share with you beyond what our young company has already achieved.
