Community Consultative Committee

At Santos we believe in listening and learning. To do this, we need the community to have a voice, so we have established two Community Consultative Committees.

These Committees identify issues of concern and work to facilitate the distribution of information and a positive working relationship between Santos and the community.

Members are drawn from a cross section of society including local government, educators, health practitioners, community service representatives, local businesses and community members.

Please visit the committees sections below for further information and to download presentations and meeting minutes.
