The 2021-2022 sustainability report, titled “Legacy of Progress”, coincides with Crescent Petroleum’s 50th anniversary. The milestone offers an occasion to reflect on our progress and accomplishments over the past five decades.

Chief Executive Officer
We have conducted a detailed materiality assessment to help us verify focus areas, reveal opportunity areas, and prioritize sustainability topics that matter most to our company and our stakeholders. Understanding the most critical sustainability challenges, risks, opportunities and impacts is central to our sustainability strategy. The materiality assessment process is aimed to align with the GRI stakeholder inclusiveness and materiality priorities and includes the following steps:
Consult with internal business units to review the topics that impact their individual functions. Other sources used to identify issues include external stakeholder engagements, peer benchmarking, sustainability rating agencies, and key sustainability standards.
We categorize the issues identified and assess their respective relevance or impact on the business and our stakeholders.
Prior to finalizing the assessment, we review the list of issues and their ranking with senior management and a select group of external stakeholders.
