At Woodside, our social licence to operate is as important as driving shareholder value and delivering safe and reliable production.
Peter Coleman
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director

Woodside has an active role to play in contributing to the wellbeing of our communities and creating a more sustainable future. We can achieve this by building and maintaining relationships that allow us to engage in real conversations with the local community, and work together to make a difference.

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 in which 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. As our business expands internationally, building relationships and supporting outcomes that have a positive impact in communities where we are active become even more important.

Stronger Communities
