Santos in the community

We aim to make meaningful, long-term contributions that make a real difference to the communities in which we operate.

"We work to be a valued member of the communities of which we are a part."

Santos has a focused community investment strategy that is centered on investment for shared outcomes, education and community vibrancy. Our priority community investment areas are: 

  1. Caring for the natural environment, including project that protects our land, air and water.

  2. Developing a future for young people and regional areas.

  3. Investing in healthy, vibrant communities.

We encourage employees to get involved in community activities. We monitor, and where possible, measure and report on the outcomes of these activities, and identify and act on areas for improvement.

Whether we are drilling a well in the Australian outback or producing gas from our offshore platform in Indonesia, the range of people with which we interact is broad. 

We openly share information about our activities and seek to manage potential impacts through open, collaborative communication. To promote open channels of communication, we have project-specific community engagement plans for all major operations. 

Santos is committed to upholding its reputation as a trusted energy company. It will continue to provide clean energy solutions for Australia and Asia while operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
