Indigenous Peoples

page_header_inigenous.jpg​We acknowledge the unique relationships Indigenous communities have to land and sea.

Woodside builds long-lasting relationships with Indigenous communities in which we are active. We demonstrate respect and act with integrity as we generate positive economic, social and cultural outcomes.

In Australia, we maintain relationships with Aboriginal communities in the Pilbara, Kimberley and South West regions.

Woodside has been part of Reconciliation Australia's Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program since 2009.

Our current 2016 Reconciliation Action Plan outlines a number of public commitments to promote reconciliation within our company and the wider community.

Our latest results are reported in our 2015 Sustainable Development Report and our 2015 Reconciliation Action Plan Annual Report.

Cultural Heritage

The ​Pluto LNG Park is located in the Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estate, which was established in 2003 by an agreement between the Western Australian Government and the local Ngarluma, Yindjibarndi, Yaburara, Mardudhunera and Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo Indigenous groups.

The footprint of the Pluto LNG Park was designed to avoid significant areas of cultural heritage. Woodside continues to work with local Aboriginal groups to responsibly manage cultural heritage (including rock art) and has established a Cultural Heritage Management Plan to manage all onsite activity.
