Woodside Energy (Woodside) has continued its track record of contribution to Western Australian
communities, announcing a A$50 million commitment to the Resources Community Investment Initiative
(RCII) announced today by Premier Mark McGowan.
CEO Meg O’Neill said Woodside was pleased to join with the WA Government and other industry
participants to establish the RCII, which will facilitate investment in infrastructure projects and community and
social initiatives across WA.
“For more than three decades we have built strong relationships in WA, underpinned by significant social
investment and economic contribution aimed at creating a positive legacy for the communities where we live
“Woodside’s founding commitment of A$50 million to the RCII provides an exciting new opportunity for us to
continue this positive contribution to the people of WA.
“While Woodside’s global footprint has grown significantly following our merger with BHP Petroleum, we
remain a proudly WA-headquartered company. Woodside’s significant contribution to the RCII demonstrates
our ongoing commitment to continue supporting local communities for years to come,” she said.
WA Premier Mark McGowan said the strength of WA’s economy placed government and the industry in the
best position to set up Western Australia for the long-term.
“I commend the efforts of Woodside as a founding partner of the initiative and acknowledge their leadership
in contributing to our State in this capacity.
“I look forward to their continued support and seeing some iconic State projects delivered, which will have
lasting benefits for generations,” he said.
Under the terms of the RCII, Woodside will nominate the projects it proposes to direct funding towards, with
individual project agreements to be established with agreed project milestones.
