Judges Quotes

“Range’s approach to environmental protection is refreshing to see. Whilst focused environmental performance measures including environmental spills, compliance actions and regulatory updates are core, they have a huge drive to do things ‘outside the box’, from habitat enhancement projects to saving the existence of native monarch butterflies, wild flowers and the ‘Forever Pheasants’ program. It’s a very unique and commendable approach to conservation of the natural habitat.”

“The commitment to fostering thriving communities at Range Resources is driven by its employees and has a particular focus on quality schools and education programs, strong economic growth and a healthy environment. Range’s community giving is focused on five core areas: Education and Youth Activities, First Responders, Community Services and Enrichment, Health and Wellness and Conservation. Great case studies to back up all of these core areas. I was particularly impressed by their Charity Golf and Shooting, which surpassed $1m in 2018”
