We partner with Indigenous communities to create positive outcomes that leave a lasting legacy.
In Australia, we maintain relationships with Indigenous communities in the Pilbara, Kimberley and South West regions. We acknowledge the unique connection that Indigenous communities have to land, waters and the environment.
We understand the importance of identifying and working with those who have longstanding cultural and spiritual connections to land and waters where we have presence.
Cultural heritage management is integral to our operations and factored into the planning of our growth projects.
We build long-lasting relationships with Indigenous communities in which we operate.
We engage with Indigenous communities to create positive economic, social and cultural outcomes.
We are committed to providing employment and training opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds.
Our continued commitment to Reconciliation
Woodside has been part of Reconciliation Australia's Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program since 2009.
Overseen by not-for-profit organisation Reconciliation Australia, RAPs require participants to publicly nominate and report on practical actions they are taking to foster reconciliation and help reduce the unacceptable life-expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Woodside was the first oil and gas company to join the program, and we've continued our pioneering approach. Our current 2016 - 2020 RAP has been recognised for shifting away from measuring activities, in favour of longer-term outcomes. We report every year on progress from our base year (2016) towards committed outcomes in Respect, Relationships, Opportunities and National Leadership.
