Chairman's Stewardship Awards 

Since its inception nearly 80 years ago, the IOGCC has voiced the need for sound oil and natural gas environmental policy. Many organizations have gone far beyond the basic mandates of law and regulation to protect and enhance our nation's natural resources. The Chairman's Stewardship Awards represent the IOGCC's highest honor for exemplary efforts by the oil and natural gas industry in environmental stewardship.

The award-winning projects represent a few of the many positive programs initiated by domestic oil and natural gas organizations and industry. The intention of the awards is to recognize achievement and challenge organizations, companies and individuals nationwide to demonstrate innovation, dedication and passion for our environment. Stewardship within the industry is one of the great untold success stories and the projects represent only a sample of those in operation throughout the world.
