At NRP we seek sustainable practices, partnerships, and opportunities that promote responsible use of our natural resource assets, benefit our local communities, support employee well-being, and drive long-term value for our stakeholders. NRP owns mineral interests and other rights that are leased to companies engaged in the extraction of minerals. NRP does not mine, drill, or produce minerals, has no operations, and conducts business solely in an office environment of approximately 41,000 square feet in Houston, Texas and Huntington, West Virginia. With a relatively small workforce of just over 50 employees, our direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions impact is negligible.
