Community Outreach

At California Resources Corporation (CRC), our values of Character, Responsibility and Commitment direct how we conduct our business, contribute to our communities, support local economies, and interact daily with our stakeholders. CRC increases our energy security by reducing the state’s chronic dependence on imports and helps California retain the value created by local energy production. As a proud California company, CRC is dedicated to ensuring that diverse communities across our state have a vibrant and sustainable future by all measures – environmental, economic and social. CRC is a key economic engine, supporting thousands of vendors, suppliers and jobs by investing nearly $5 billion since 2014 into the state’s economy. As the largest producer on California State Lands, CRC provided approximately $1.2 billion in revenues and taxes since 2014 to the state and our host cities and counties where we live and work .

Our goal is to grow in tandem with our communities by providing ample, affordable and reliable energy that allows Californians to thrive. CRC’s Board of Directors has established three key principles that we apply through our Community Outreach and Health, Safety and Environmental Programs.

  • Safeguard people and the environment in the design, operation and maintenance of our facilities.
  • Engage proactively with neighbors, regulators and other stakeholders to serve as an active and supportive community partner.
  • Promote conservation of water, habitat and energy in all of our operations.

CRC has adopted 2030 sustainability goals focused on water conservation, renewables integration, methane emission reduction, and carbon capture and sequestration to incorporate into our life-of-field planning. Our 2017 Sustainability Overview summarizes our sustainability strategy, goals and performance.
