While we’re in the business of providing global energy, we recognise the importance of our role in delivering mutual and sustainable social outcomes in the areas where we operate.

We've built genuine and long-term relationships with our stakeholders and host communities over more than 60 years. This is represented in our core value of working sustainably – we are here for the long-term. We look out for each other, our communities and the environment.

More than half our workforce volunteered in 2019

Volunteering spirit is part of what being a Woodsider is all about. This National Volunteer Week, we want to give a shout out to all the volunteers who support our communities, particularly now as we get through COVID-19 together.

2005
the year we introduced paid volunteering leave, one of the first Australian companies to do so

We're a big believer in the benefits of corporate volunteering. Our surveys show that in addition to community and individual benefits, volunteering improves workplaces through increased empathy, better communication, higher morale and development of new skills.

We currently offer employees 12 hours of volunteering leave each year. Our volunteering partners at Volunteering WA and Conservation Volunteers Australia help us identify where support is most needed.

We were the first Corporate Volunteering Member of Volunteering WA, a founding member of the Corporate Volunteer Council and a leader in encouraging improved benchmarking and reporting through the London Benchmarking Group.

Impact on communities

We aim to build the capacity and capability of the communities where we work. The growth of our Indigenous workforce is due to the success of our pathway programs, external recruitment drive, graduate intake and continued engagement.
