Woodside has a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption, in any form, in connection with our business in Australia and overseas.

Bribery and corruption undermine fair competition, erode public trust in governments and business, and disadvantage economies. They present a threat to commercial organisations and communities worldwide.

We assess fraud and corruption risk across all our activities and locations. To determine risk level, the criteria used include country of operation, activities undertaken, the level and nature of engagement with government, history of enforcement, and susceptibility to fraud and corruption.

Compass Values

Our values are strong, and our policies and procedures to prevent bribery and corruption are robust. As we strive to achieve our vision of becoming a global leader in oil and gas, we must remain alert to bribery and corruption risks and act in keeping with our values, our policies and the law. We must always do what’s right, even when it’s not easy.
