Sustainability at Woodside is about being here for the long term. It’s about respecting the environment and communities we work in and keeping each other safe.
Sustainable development is core to Woodside’s business strategy. It involves balancing short and long-term interests and integrating health and safety, environmental, social and economic considerations into our decision-making.
Working Sustainably is one of our six core values. The others are Integrity, Respect, Working Together, Discipline and Excellence.
Our approach to sustainability is incorporated in our policies and Code of Conduct. It is also integrated into the Woodside Management System which provides a structured governance framework across all Woodside sites and locations with defined accountabilities and performance requirements for Woodside's managers, employees and contractors.
Sustainable Development Report
Our 2012 Sustainable Development Report reflects our commitment to working sustainably and reporting transparently. It is the key document we use to provide our stakeholders with information on our approach and performance in respect to communities, the environment, our people and health and safety. It complements our 2012 Annual Report which provides information on our operations and financial performance.
The report provides information on community engagement and investment, health and safety, people, environment and economic contribution. It also describes the measures we are taking to address key material issues affecting the sustainable development of our business.
The report is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines G3.0. Where possible, we have also provided data in accordance with the G3.1 Guidelines and the GRI Oil and Gas Sector Supplement. The GRI Index cross references the GRI indictors to the relevant sections of the 2012 Sustainable Development, the 2012 Annual Report and web based information.
