Human rights

Woodside conducts business in a way that respects the human rights of all people, including our employees, the communities where we are active, and those working within our supply chains.

Woodside’s business conduct is informed by the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The Guiding Principles define the accountabilities of governments in protecting human rights, and of business in respecting human rights.

Our Human Rights Policy outlines the principles by which we operate, and is supported by the human rights principles and commitments in our Code of Conduct and other relevant policies on this page.

Human rights is embedded in our approach

Woodside’s approach to human rights is overseen by our Board and the Executive Committee. The Board’s Sustainability Committee is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations to the Board on Woodside's human rights policy and performance.

Collaborating with others on human rights

We work with our peers and key stakeholders to improve our approach to managing human rights risks in our operations and supply chains.
