Callon's Mission

Build trust, create value and drive sustainable growth responsibly for our investors, our employees and the communities in which we operate.


  • Callon actively works to reduce air emissions, protect local water supplies, minimize freshwater use and prevent spills. Our ongoing environmental programs have not only reduced our operational impacts, but also improved efficiency, lowered costs and reduced risk.
  • In 2019, we doubled our water recycling capacity, decreased our fluid spill rate by 28% and reduced truck traffic by over 400,000 truck loads per year by transporting more than 90% of oil and water via pipelines.
  • We surpassed $10 million in total invested capital in recent years for electrification projects that lower combustion emissions. We effectively reduced the rate of gas flared by more than 30%.


  • Callon employs a talented workforce and we are committed to the safety, health and development of each team member. We believe that a strong safety culture is a requirement to be a leading operator, and we value each other’s ideas and contributions to foster a respectful workplace and work toward common goals.
  • Callon was named a Top Workplace (by our employees) via the Houston Chronicle for the third year in a row, and had a 92% participation level in our employee engagement survey.
  • We achieved our best safety year on record, and saw an increase of 73% in BBS behavioral base operations.


  • Callon seeks to operate our business responsibly, ethically and in a manner aligned with the interests of our shareholders. We are committed to effective and sustainable corporate governance, which we believe strengthens accountability, promotes the long-term interests of our shareholders and helps build public trust in our Company.
  • Our commitment to high ethical standards is set forth in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which includes an anonymous reporting Helpline and a non-retaliation policy.
  • Our Board has established - and annually revisits - sound corporate governance policies that provide the framework under which we fulfill our responsibilities to shareholders.
  • We value diversity of thought and experience in the board room, and Callon has assembled a Board that brings a variety of perspectives and skills to best represent the interest of shareholders. Ten of 11 of our board directors are independent, and our board committees are comprised of entirely independent directors.
