CNX contributes to society through the direct economic value we generate, the energy we produce, and our commitment to operate responsibly.

Community Investments

Engaging with a diverse, local supplier base not only brings innovation and collaboration to our business, it creates opportunities in the communities where we live and work. CNX works with suppliers on innovative technologies in pursuit of a multitude of efficiency and environmental goals.

CNX suppliers and contractors are critical members of our community and play a significant role in our operations. We hold these partners to high environmental, safety, and health standards—as detailed in our Supplier Code of Conduct Policy and CNX's Code of Employee Business Conduct and Ethics. Together we can mitigate risk. In 2023, CNX purchased approximately $788M in commercial goods and services from approximately 1,313 suppliers. Our pre-qualification and selection program helps to ensure we work with qualified and safe companies.

CNX sets direct targets to promote the success of local vendors and prioritizes purchasing of services and materials from providers that, in the aggregate, maintain a 90% local permanent residency. In 2023, CNX committed approximately 58% of our total small business spend to companies within our operating area.

Our industry is the lifeblood of the regional economy and the foundation of our social fabric. Growing and supporting the businesses that power our communities and targeting local disadvantaged urban and rural areas in our region with our vendor spend is a big part of what sustainability and ESG means to CNX.

Helping Local Small Businesses Thrive

Founded in 1959, Ken Miller Supply is a chain of full-service oilfield supply stores located throughout Appalachia. CEO Lindy Chandler represents the third generation of her family to lead the business.

“Our family-owned business, Ken Miller Supply, has been provided many growth opportunities over the past 8 years through our relationship with CNX. Today we supply CNX in all but one of our 6 locations, provide a wider range of products, and now supply additional CNX affiliated companies. CNX has recognized our value to their field personnel through our experience and service as we supply rural areas in the Appalachian region.”

West Penn Energy Services, LLC , a pipeline and facility construction company located near Indiana, PA, has been working for CNX in the Appalachian Basin for over 20 years. The company is owned by Michael J. Zentz, who has been active in oil and gas drilling, completions, and operations in the Appalachian Basin for the past 35 years.

“In addition to providing my employees with good paying jobs, I appreciate CNX for its safety programs and its environmental stewardship. Safety has gone from the back burner to the forefront since I started working in this basin in 1987. It had to change, and I thank companies like CNX for stepping up to make a change for the better. I have also seen a big change in the environmental processes that we use to make the land that we develop a much better place. I take a lot of pride in the jobs that we do and appreciate CNX for standing alongside us when we pipeline across a landowner’s property. Our goal is to leave it better than when we arrived which is also CNX’s goal.”
