Woodside belongs to peak industry organisations that play multiple roles and make a contribution to civil society.
These organisations set technical standards, share best practice, facilitate stakeholder engagement and give members a forum for policy discussions. They do not represent the views of any individual member.
Woodside makes its own views on policy matters known through public statements and commitments.
By participating in peak industry organisations, we can show leadership in our industry and in the community. We have the opportunity to increase our awareness of policy issues, better understand stakeholder expectations and engage constructively on issues when we have something to add.
We monitor the positions of organisations of which we are members and regularly review how they align with our objectives and principles. We are one voice amongst many in these groups and, as such, we seek to influence their positions on a range of policy issues.
We consider our policy principles to be broadly aligned with the latest positions articulated by groups of which we are members.
