WASHINGTON, December 15, 2022 – The Environmental Partnership today announced Emily Hague as Director beginning in January. In this role, Hague will lead The Partnership’s efforts to drive innovation and share best practices among industry leaders to improve environmental performance and reduce methane emissions in every major U.S. basin. Hague, who currently leads the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Onshore Safety Alliance, will succeed Matthew Todd, who is departing after five years of leading The Partnership and more than 20 years at API.
“As The Environmental Partnership has grown over the past five years, so has the scope of our mission, and I am confident that Emily’s ability to collaborate with a variety of stakeholders and achieve results for the industry will serve her well in this new role,” said Vanessa Ryan, chair of The Environmental Partnership and manager of methane reduction for Chevron. “I want to thank Matthew Todd for his leadership in building a successful program from the ground up and I look forward to working with Emily to continue this momentum in the years ahead.”
“The Environmental Partnership serves a critical role in uniting industry efforts to address the climate challenge and I am honored to be working with these talented men and women to continue to drive progress,” said Hague.
Hague comes to the Partnership with over ten years of experience building industry consensus on important upstream-focused policies, and most recently starting and leading API’s Onshore Safety Alliance (OSA). As the OSA Manager, Hague led industry to design a voluntary program to support the industry’s goal of protecting workers and advancing safe operations in U.S. onshore exploration and production – bridging divides and ultimately launching a program with broad representation across the industry. Through the program, Hague led OSA participants to share their expertise through the development of good practices and guidance that will advance all industry companies along their individual safety journeys and improve the industry’s safety performance collectively.
Prior to joining API, Hague worked at the Department of the Interior as a career employee, supporting senior leadership under both the Bush and Obama Administrations and working across the Department and within the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals, the Office of the Solicitor and the Minerals Management Service (MMS). She has a J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University.
The Environmental Partnership is comprised of companies in the U.S. oil and natural gas industry committed to continuously improving the industry’s environmental performance. Since launching in 2017, The Partnership has quadrupled in size, now representing 100 companies that make up 70% of the U.S. onshore natural gas and oil industry, reflecting the growing commitment to driving innovation, sharing best practices and increasing transparency to reduce methane emissions in every major U.S. basin.
API represents all segments of America’s natural gas and oil industry, which supports more than 11 million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans. Our approximately 600 members produce, process and distribute the majority of the nation’s energy, and participate in API Energy Excellence®, which is accelerating environmental and safety progress by fostering new technologies and transparent reporting. API was formed in 1919 as a standards-setting organization and has developed more than 800 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency and sustainability.
