Equal Opportunity & Diversity Policy

Introduction

At Cooper Energy we believe that decision-making is enhanced through diversity. Diversity means valuing an individual's race, colour, gender, age, creed, ethnicity, cultural background, economic circumstance, human capacity, expression of thought and sexual orientation as well as their experiences, skills and capabilities to create a business environment that encourages a range of perspectives and fosters excellence in the creation of security holder value.

This policy applies to all Cooper Energy employees, contractors and stakeholders. Each person has an obligation to support and respect equality, workplace diversity and ethical practices in their workplace.

Key principles

We believe that diversity provides a competitive advantage and through diversity we make better informed decisions which create further value for security holders. We support and encourage diversity at all levels; the Board of directors, the senior management team and throughout our organisation.

Culture and attitude are key elements in an inclusive approach to diversity. Neither mandated retirement ages nor quotas based on race, colour, gender or creed will guarantee changes in culture or attitude. At Cooper Energy we believe that merit is the key requirement for employee advancement.

Measurable objectives for achieving gender diversity

Cooper Energy is committed to an inclusive workplace that embraces and promotes gender diversity as part of our culture. This involves providing supportive and inclusive workplace policies and practices including in relation to talent management, recruitment practices, pay equity and flexible work arrangements.

The Board (on recommendation by the Remuneration and Nomination Committee) sets appropriate measurable objectives for achieving gender diversity which may include gender representation targets (Measurable Objectives). 

Implementation and Review

The Board of Directors is responsible for the implementation and review of this Policy and monitoring performance of this Policy.

External communication in relation to this Policy will primarily be undertaken through the Company’s annual report. This Policy (or a summary) will be published on the Company’s external website under Corporate Governance
