Our Responsibilities

Establishing another champion of exploration and discovery


08 Oct 2009

The Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus) has opened the doors to its newly refurbished headquarters in Adelaide, with significant help from Santos.

Exploration and discovery have made Santos one of Australia’s leading energy companies. So we’re proud to be Foundation Sponsors of the RiAus, an organisation dedicated to providing people with a place to explore and discover the wonders of science in everyday life. Housed in the old Stock Exchange, RiAus aims to "bring science to people and people to science".

Santos’ support for the RiAus here in Australia is fundamentally linked to our business. As an energy company, science is at the heart of everything we do. Our industry depends on it and so does the wider community. We are compelled to encourage the pursuit of science and have contributed $5 million to the establishment of the RiAus as a Foundation Partner of this celebrated institution.

The RiAus will increase the level of scientific debate and literacy amongst the wider community and this is a timely development given the global challenges we all face.
