Environmental Stewardship

Since its inception in 1935, the Commission has voiced the need for sound oil and natural gas environmental policy. Member states continuously seek new and innovative techniques to produce these much-needed resources without compromising our environment. The Commission also serves as a forum for state regulators to share their ideas and viewpoints to strengthen state programs that oversee oil and natural gas production.

Additionally, in 1995 the Commission initiated the annual Chairman's Stewardship Awards, which represent the nations highest honor for exemplary efforts in environmental stewardship. The awards recognize achievement and challenge organizations, companies and individuals nationwide to demonstrate innovation, dedication and passion for our environment.

All nominations received will be mentioned in the Winners Booklet along with project title. All past winners and their projects will also be mentioned in the Winners Booklet.
