Sustainability By The Numbers

At California Resources Corporation (CRC), we believe transparent reporting of our environmental, social and governance (ESG) data enhances our stakeholder engagement, strengthens our performance, and further supports our role as a dependable and dedicated energy producer in the State of California. Accordingly, we have continued to expand our sustainability disclosures, and are providing the tables below to summarize a subset of our publicly reported ESG performance data. A PDF of these tables can also be downloaded for your convenience. Our Annual Report and Proxy Statement provide additional details on our financial and governance information. CRC’s 2030 Sustainability Goals and our ongoing sustainability strategy align with California’s climate goals under the Paris Climate Accord and its sustainable development by providing safe, affordable and reliable energy sources necessary to ensure human welfare and a more inclusive and equitable economy and society in the context of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

For additional information, please refer to the following reference guides which identify sector-specific Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) guidelines and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Core Option standards that we find to be most important and relevant to all stakeholders and where those items are disclosed:

(a) Direct upstream emissions include Scope 1 GHG emissions from oil and gas drilling and production at fields operated by CRC and exclude those from the midstream operations of the Elk Hills gas and power plants, Ventura gas plant and Long Beach power plant. Emissions for 2019 do not include the portion of the Lost Hills field that was sold on May 1, 2019. Emissions are calculated in accordance with California regulations and emissions estimation protocols.
(b) Total direct emissions include direct upstream emissions plus Scope 1 GHG emissions from the midstream operations of the Elk Hills and Long Beach power plants, as well as gas processing at Elk Hills and Santa Clara Valley Gas Plants.
(c) Energy use and intensity exclude energy used by the midstream operations of the Elk Hills and Long Beach power plants, as well as gas processing at Elk Hills and Santa Clara Valley Gas Plants.
(d) Reportable release definitions vary by location. Any volume of oil released into state waters must be reported in California. Net oil released means the volume of oil and condensate spilled in reportable releases outside of containment and not recovered in liquid form.
(e) Taxes include state and local property, sales, use, severance and payroll taxes, and exclude GHG allowances.
(f) Excludes payments made to the State Lands Commission.
(g) See CRC.com, Investor Relations for a discussion of these performance and non-GAAP measures, including a reconciliation to the most closely related GAAP measure or information on the related calculations.
