Understanding Our Stakeholders

​​

We work hard to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders who are interested in and affected by our activities. 

Our Approach

Woodside applies an integrated and consistent approach to stakeholder engagement to protect our reputation, grow shareholder return, support social and economic prosperity of the communities where we operate, and maintain our licence to operate.

We work hard to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders who are interested in and affected by our activities. 

We identify our stakeholders based on the location, timing and potential impacts and opportunities of our activities. 

We acknowledge and, where appropriate, seek to address and resolve key stakeholder concerns and complaints.

Our External Stakeholder Engagement Procedure mandates the minimum requirements for engaging with our stakeholders. We have guidelines to assess the potential effects and benefits of our current and future activities and how best to engage to encourage open and transparent communication and feedback.

The table below identifies eight stakeholder groups across the business, their key interests and concerns and our company-wide engagements with each group during 2016.

Woodside staff, in compiling this report, consulted representatives from each stakeholder group to identify issues of material concern as part of our materiality process​.
