Sustainability at Santos
A sustainable approach
Santos is not just an energy company, but a company with the energy to be sustainable.
For Santos, sustainability means supplying energy for the future, and doing business in a way that improves outcomes for shareholders, employees, business partners and the communities in which it operates.
Santos does this by considering a comprehensive set of criteria beyond traditional economic measures that assess the full impact of company activities and enables better business decisions through a deeper understanding of their impacts.
As well as producing positive outcomes for all stakeholders, sustainability improves Santos’ efficiency and profitability as it strives for a leadership position in the energy market.
Santos has a three-year sustainability vision, which is built upon three key themes:
- understanding stakeholder expectations
- driving sustainability performance in existing operations
- integrating sustainability into the company’s transformational growth strategy.
Sustainability is explicit in Santos’ vision and provides a framework that links financial and operating targets with responsibilities to other important stakeholders.
Santos’ 2012 Sustainability Report provides a concise summary of the company’s performance across all of its operations in 2012.
This report has been developed based on input from stakeholders including employees, contractors, non-government organisations, regulators, investor research firms, shareholders and the broader community.
It aims to provide these stakeholders with further insight into Santos’ approach to sustainability and its performance across a comprehensive suite of indicators.
