Santos is committed to safety and sustainably delivering natural gas to its customers, providing clean and reliable energy to Australian and Asian markets.
Santos supports the objective to limiting global temperature rises to less than 2 degrees Celsius.
As population grows and urbanisation provides more people with access to electricity, demand for energy will continue to grow. To meet this demand and limit temperature rise, a suite of options will be required that balances reliability, cost, and environmental factors. Natural gas is ideally placed to underpin this transition to a lower-carbon economy, as it is a reliable and aﬀordable source of energy that produces 50% less greenhouse gas emissions than coal when used to generate electricity and less local air pollutants.
A sustainable future depends on Australian natural gas, and Santos is proud to play an important role in securing Australia’s economic and environmental future for generations to come.
Santos drives performance through our sustainability scorecard. Implemented in 2005, the scorecard is used to annually set targets and measure and report our performance.
Measuring our performance across a comprehensive suite of sustainability indicators provides a way which Santos can benchmark its performance, identify efficiency opportunities, address any corrective actions and recognise good performance.
Santos’ sustainability scorecard is the principal tool that we use to measure our sustainability performance. A company-wide assessment is conducted annually on a calendar year basis.
To give a visual representation of the scoring, the resultant score for each sustainability indicator is mapped onto the scorecard diagram.
Further details about Santos’ management approach, performance and initiatives are reported in our annual sustainability report. The content of our Sustainability Report is indexed against the Global Reporting Initiative G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Santos voluntarily discloses to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and CDP Climate Change.
