Santos will support two national partnerships that benefit communities in our regions of operation.

A national indigenous program that helps achieve the outcomes in the Government’s ‘Close the Gap’ report.  This program must have a strong focus on the Northern Territory and opportunities in Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and New South Wales.

A national education partnership with primary and high school focused program that aims to get young people interested in the oil and gas industry.

Applications for these partnerships have now closed. Successful partnerships will be announced shortly.

Assessment criteria

Our community investment programs are determined by three guiding principles and five Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) pillars that reflect our business values and provide sustainable benefits to the communities where our people live and work.

  • Guiding Principles – Your sponsorships must align with our Guiding Principles which determine whether your proposal has a ‘strategic fit’ with the Santos brand and business.
  • CSR Pillars – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) ‘pillars’ define the key categories of sponsorships we will support.  Sponsorships must align with one or more of the pillars.
