We view sustainability as a multidisciplinary focus that balances economic growth, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Pioneer develops natural resources while supporting surrounding communities and protecting the environment. Intently focused on reducing emissions and emission intensities, Pioneer intends to achieve net-zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions in our operations by 2050. To achieve this, we have set ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) intensity 50% by 2030 and methane emissions intensity 75% by 2030. We will also sustain an annual flaring intensity of less than 1% and end routine flaring by 2025.

For years Pioneer has focused on reducing its use of freshwater by increasing reuse of produced water and working with the cities of Midland and Odessa to acquire treated reclaimed water. In 2021, Pioneer announced a target to reduce freshwater use in Completions Operations to 20% by 2026.

Socially, Pioneer maintains a proactive safety culture, supports a diverse workforce and inspires teamwork to drive innovation. For more information about Pioneer’s position on human rights and equality, visit the Values and Diversity and Inclusion pages. See also our:
