We aspire to partner with and be trusted by the communities where we operate so they can benefit from the development of natural gas resources.

Natural gas development supports communities across Australia

We are committed to creating a sustainable future for the communities where we live and work, by providing benefits that have a positive impact. We partner with local businesses and organisations to actively listen to, support, invest, create jobs and build diverse skill sets.

Keeping Santos’ supply chain local is a key enabler for economic, environmental, social and operational sustainability. Hiring and procuring locally is important to Santos because it encourages:

  • A reliable, local supply chain that can be flexible and resilient in times of uncertainty.
  • Long-term socio-economic benefits for smaller regional communities.
  • Upskilling and educational opportunities.
  • Local suppliers to source from other local companies.

We aim to create positive long-term impacts in the communities where we live and work, by providing local employment, training, education and enterprise opportunities. Sharing the positive economic and social benefits of natural gas is critical to ensuring a sustainable future for both Santos and the community.

Read more about our approach to communities and achieving positive outcomes through our supply chain in the 2021 Sustainability Report.

Santos’ ongoing commitment to managing modern slavery risks

Modern slavery is described as a range of exploitative practices including human trafficking, forced labour, child labour, and where threats or deception are used to exploit victims and undermine or deprive them of their freedom.

Santos acknowledges the importance of tackling this serious issue and the actions that we can apply to our extensive supply chain.

Read more about our three-year road map in our Modern Slavery Statement.
