This ESG Report contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Statements that do not relate strictly to historical or current facts are forward-looking and are usually identified by the use of words such as “seek,” “strive,” "anticipate," "estimate," "could," "would," "will," "may," "forecast," "approximate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe" and other words of similar meaning, or the negative thereof, in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial matters. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this ESG Report include the expectations of plans, strategies, objectives and growth and anticipated financial, operational, and ESG performance of EQT Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively, EQT), including with respect to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; air quality; water management; biodiversity impacts; security, human rights, and the rights of indigenous peoples; community relations; workforce health and safety; reserves valuation, capital expenditures and well costs; the projected benefits of our combo-development strategy; projections of wells to be developed by combo-development project; business ethics and transparency; management of the legal and regulatory environment; and critical incident risk management. The forward-looking statements included in this ESG Report involve risks and uncertainties, including risks and uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic that could cause actual results to differ materially from projected results. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. EQT has based these forward-looking statements on current expectations and assumptions about future events, taking into account all information currently known by EQT. While EQT considers these expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and beyond EQT's control. The risks and uncertainties that may affect the operations, performance and results of EQT's business and forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those set forth in this ESG Report and under Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” and elsewhere in EQT’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as updated by Part II, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in EQT’s subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other documents EQT files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and EQT does not intend to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
Materials are used within this ESG Report to describe issues for voluntary ESG reporting that EQT considers to be of high or medium importance in terms of stakeholder interest and potential business impact. Material for the purposes of this ESG Report should not, therefore, be read as equating to any use of the word in other EQT reports or filings. No part of this ESG Report should be taken to constitute an invitation or inducement to invest in EQT.
