Our Responsibilities

Santos Community Fund

Santos actively supports the communities in which we operate. We do this through using local suppliers, creating employment and training opportunities and supporting community organisations and events through community sponsorships.

In 2013, Santos was proud to fund a range of community sponsorships in Australia and overseas. Working in partnership with communities, charitable organisations and government agencies, Santos invested over $12 million to support a range of causes, initiatives and events. Santos is currently reviewing our community investment strategy and process to create greater impact and better measure our impact. This new approach will be shared later in 2014. In the meantime, Santos continues to focus on the themes of arts/culture, community wellbeing, education/youth, environment, health and Indigenous.
