Human rights

Santos recognises and respects the human rights of our employees, contractors, their families, the communities in which we work and all other people. This includes understanding the broad range of individual and cultural differences in the Company and the countries in which we operate.

We believe that community engagement and consultation is a central part of our process and we seek to genuinely understand the perspectives of the people in the communities in which we operate. 

Santos systems and procedures are based on an understanding and respect for human rights with our principles consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We will continue to establish education and training for employees and are continually evolving our monitoring instruments to ensure all operations are in accordance with international human rights standards and are independently verifiable.
