HOUSTON, April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Select Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: WTTR) ("Select" or the "Company"), a leading provider of sustainable water and chemical solutions to the U.S. unconventional oil and gas industry, today announced the release of its 2021 Sustainability Report, the inaugural report for the Company.

John Schmitz, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, stated, "At Select, we take our leadership in providing sustainable full-life-cycle water and chemical solutions seriously, and embrace additional transparency and accountability as we work to expand this leading position. We believe the issuance of our inaugural Sustainability Report, in conjunction with the ambitious water recycling and safety performance targets we implemented tied to our new sustainability-linked credit facility, further exemplify our commitment to providing sustainable solutions. Select is dedicated to implementing a corporate strategy that supports the long-term viability of its business model in a manner that focuses on its people, its customers, the environment, and the communities in which we operate.

"We believe this focus will help us and our customers achieve targeted short-term and long-term ESG goals, help us attract and retain top talent, and further our efforts to generate superior investor returns. Our commitment to foster a culture of corporate responsibility is an important part of being a company with operations spanning the contiguous United States, and is strategic to our growth in water and chemicals solutions. As a service company, we compete with other providers based on various factors, including customer service, safety and operational performance, technological innovation, process efficiencies and reputational awareness. We believe there is a strong link between these corporate responsibility initiatives and our ability to provide continued value enhancement to our stakeholders," concluded Schmitz.

Select's 2021 Sustainability Report details the policies, processes, procedures, and performance by which Select establishes and advances Environmental, Social, and Governance ("ESG") goals and criteria, as well as how the Company aims to act as a force for environmental stewardship and promote sustainable development in communities in which it operates.
