Civitas is Latin for community. The naming was intentional—Colorado has always carefully balanced meeting the needs of its communities while ensuring that future considerations are thoughtfully nurtured. We believe in an open, two-way dialogue in which we provide clear information, listen to feedback and are accountable for our actions. These agreements build on our practice of listening and adjusting our operations, when possible, based on the latest technologies, mitigation techniques and industry best practices.
Unlocking Colorado’s Energy Resources
Civitas Resources uses industry-leading technology to produce the energy that is essential to our daily lives right here in Colorado. As part of our commitment to the communities where we operate, our production techniques not only meet but exceed Colorado’s stringent state requirements to protect air and water.

Our Commitment to Public Health and Safety
Civitas has developed practices that continue to enhance the well-being and safety of the communities. Civitas is proud to be a test bed for ambitiously practical strategies that enable the company to be more socially and environmentally responsive within its communities and for partners.
These are among the innovative practices the company seeks to implement in operations, where possible:
Air-tight Closed-Loop Systems that Capture 99.9 Percent of Emissions
Quiet Fleet Completion Equipment that Emits Three Times Less Noise than Traditional Fleets
Facilities that Store No Oil Products On-Site
Voluntary Plugging and Reclaiming of Older Wells to Eliminate Emissions
Use of Electric Grid Power on Site (where feasible) to Eliminate Scope 1 Emissions
State of the Art Safety Systems that Facilitate Automatic Shutdowns
Civitas is also investing in the communities where we operate to play a role in the energy transition to low carbon energy and help reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Plugging Orphan Wells
Community Engagement & Volunteering
A key part of Civitas’ enhanced focus on stakeholders is a commitment to sharing the value it creates in the communities where Civitas’ employees live and work.
In 2022, Civitas will launch the Civitas Community Fund that will provide project grants and scholarships in nearby communities with special dispensation to those located closest to company operations. Apart from the Community Fund, Civitas will continue its meaningful support of local organizations that make up the fabric of its communities, including public school foundations, volunteer organizations and food banks.
