Oversight of Economic, Environmental and Social Performance

The CNX Board committees are tasked with oversight responsibilities ranging from economic and financial matters relating to the business to the impact of CNX’s operations upon the environment and the communities in which we live and work. The Board and each Board committee receives information and training from CNX's senior management team to further develop and enhance theBoard’s collective knowledge of economic, environmental and social topics. The Board and certain Board committees have authority to delegate their authority to senior executives and other employees including economic, environmental and social topics relevant to CNX, to the extent permitted by law and our corporate governance documents.

Board’s Role In Risk Management

Our management team is responsible for the management and assessment of risk at CNX and communicating those risks to our Board. Through regular presentations to the Board and the appropriate committees (as determined by the subject matter of the particular risk), which occur at least quarterly, management identifies and discusses material risks affecting the Company and our business, including reviewing economic, environmental and social matters. In 2014, our management team performed a comprehensive analysis of all material risks facing the Company and communicated those results to the full Board.

Under our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Board is charged with assessing major risks facing the Company and reviewing options for their mitigation with the assistance of the various committees. Even when a risk has been delegated to a particular committee, the Board as a whole continues to monitor such risk through its receipt and review of reports by the respective committees at each regularly scheduled Board meeting. To assist in the identification and management of risk, the Board and senior management regularly consult with shareholders and other stakeholders to identify issues.

The Audit Committee assists the Board in its general oversight of, among other things, CNX's policies, guidelines and related practices regarding risk assessment and risk management, including the risk of fraud. As part of this endeavor, the Audit Committee reviews and assesses the Company’s major financial, legal and similar risk exposures and the steps that management has taken to monitor and control such exposures. The Audit Committee also reviews and assesses the quality and integrity of CNX's public reporting, the Company’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, the performance and independence of the company’s independent auditors, the performance of the internal audit department, the effectiveness of CNX's disclosure controls and procedures, and the adequacy and effectiveness of the Company’s risk management policies and related practices.

Our Finance Committee is charged with monitoring and evaluating risks affecting the Company. Consistent with its charter, our Finance Committee reviews the Company’s financial plans, strategic plans, debt and investments, as well as the Company’s compliance with debt covenants.

Our Health, Safety and Environmental Committee addresses various risks associated with health, safety and the environment. This committee reviews (i) any material compliance issues with health, safety and environmental laws, (ii) any material pending or threatened administrative, regulatory or judicial proceedings regarding health, safety or environmental matters, and (iii) management’s response to the foregoing matters.

Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee addresses risks associated with our management structure by reviewing, among other matters, the qualifications and backgrounds of our directors on an annual basis to ensure that our Board is composed of individuals who are capable of providing appropriate oversight to our executive management team.

Finally, our Compensation Committee reviews and comments on our succession planning and assesses whether our compensation policies and practices incentivize excessive risk-taking.

Communications With The Board of Directors

To communicate critical concerns, including those relating to economic, environmental and social topics, to the board, interested persons may do so by writing to the Board, to the attention of the Corporate Secretary at CNX Resources Corporation, 1000 CONSOL Energy Drive, Canonsburg, PA 15317, or by sending an e-mail to directors@cnx.com. The Corporate Secretary will relay all such communications to the Board in its entirety or to individual directors (as appropriate) at the next regularly scheduled Board meeting (or earlier if necessary) except for spam, junk mail, mass mailings, solicitations, resumes, job inquiries or other matters unrelated to CNX. Communications that are intended specifically for the Chairman or the independent directors are to be sent to the street address or e-mail address noted above, to the attention of the Chairman or the independent directors, as intended.
