Kosmos Energy was founded in 2003 with the goal of creating value for all our stakeholders, including investors, employees and the governments and citizens of our host countries. The Kosmos Energy Business Principles represent our commitment to this goal. They are underpinned by the insight we have gleaned over our first decade and the expectations of a responsible oil and gas company as set out by our stakeholders.
The Business Principles communicate:
Our responsibilities to our stakeholders;
Our approach to ethics and transparency;
How we manage our workplaces;
Our management of environmental impacts;
How we interact with and contribute to society; and,
How we will conduct business with joint venture partners, contractors and suppliers.
The Business Principles define how we conduct our business and the standards to which we hold ourselves accountable. Directors, officers and employees are required to comply with all aspects of these Principles in their work activities and in representing the Company. The Principles are supported by more detailed policies, procedures and management systems.
The Business Principles and supporting policies on human rights and stakeholder engagement were developed through engagement with internal and external stakeholders with expertise in corporate social responsibility and human rights risk management.
