Corporate Governance at ONE Gas - Committed to the Highest Ethical Standards
Honesty, Trust and Integrity Matter
Governance Practices
Our governance practices and policies reflect a solid commitment to ONE Gas shareholders, employees and the community. We are committed to the highest ethical standards in everything we do—honesty, trust and integrity matter.

Here’s a look at how we upheld our commitments to our stakeholders in 2020 and what’s next for 2021.
Board of Directors
The ONE Gas Board of Directors is responsible for oversight of the company’s business and affairs, including the review and approval of the company’s strategic and financial plan and the company’s environmental, social and governance initiatives.

Our Board has adopted best practices in corporate governance and a comprehensive code of business conduct and ethics that go beyond the NYSE listing requirements.

These governance controls build upon a foundation of internal financial and compliance controls. The company reviews and updates its corporate governance policies and practices to keep current with the latest legal requirements and the best practices of other public companies.

Planning for the Future
In consultation with the Chairman of the Board and the CEO, the Corporate Governance Committee also conducts annual succession planning. In June 2021, the Board named Robert S. "Sid" McAnnally, who served as senior vice president and chief operating officer (COO), as president and CEO following the retirement of Pierce H. Norton II. McAnnally joined the company in 2015 as senior vice president of operations, with the Board promoting him to COO in 2020.

The company also promoted Curtis L. Dinan, former senior vice president and chief commercial officer, to senior vice president and COO. He assumed the additional responsibilities for the company’s operations and safety functions in addition to his oversight of commercial activities, rates and regulatory, corporate development, government affairs, community relations and customer service.

Code of Business Conduct & Ethics

Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides guidelines for ethical issues that may arise when interacting with fellow employees, customers, suppliers, competitors, federal and state agencies or officials or the general public. We strictly adhere to all federal and industry compliance standards and strive to exceed them. Employees train on these topics annually and confirm they comply.

In 2020, the ONE Gas Board of Directors approved an expanded Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. Additions include a
commitment to respecting human rights in our supply chain, respecting employee rights, and providing further guidance on conflict of interest and anti-corruption matters, such 
as gifts, entertainment, and other favors from customers, suppliers, vendors, or other business contacts or for government officials.
