Our stakeholders are any interested or potentially affected party, namely shareholders, employees, governments, communities, business partners and suppliers, and civil society. We believe we have unique corporate responsibilities to each of these groups: > Shareholders  We aim to create attractive returns and manage our business risks.  Kosmos Energy’s Board of Directors is focused on building a successful, long-term future for the company and ensures we maintain good corporate governance. The Board is made up of eleven members, including five Independent Directors. The Board of Directors has six standing committees: Audit Committee; Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee; Compensation Committee; External Affairs and Political Risk Committee; Health, Safety, and Environmental Committee; and the Exploration Assurance Committee.  The External Affairs and Political Risk Committee evaluates company performance against our Business Principles and advises management on issues of potential political, societal, or security risk. > Employees  We aim to provide a stimulating and rewarding work environment, and will not tolerate discrimination.  We aim to foster a company culture that combines an entrepreneurial and team-based approach with ethical behavior. Directors, officers and employees are required to comply with all aspects of the Business Principles and Kosmos’ Code of Conduct in their work activities and in representing the company. > Host Governments  We seek to establish a collaborative approach and contribute to national development.  Our goal with host governments is to develop a shared agenda based on mutual trust and respect. We are open about our business dealings with our host governments because transparency builds trust and accountability. This provides public assurance that hydrocarbon resources are developed responsibly, with the benefits going to the people of our host countries. The “Performance Data” on page 45 in this report details the payments we have made to governments.  We begin significant engagements with our host governments early, at the time of licensing, in an effort to ensure alignment with government priorities and industry needs. We aim to become a partner of choice for our host governments. > Communities  We are committed to engaging and creating opportunities, as well as respecting human rights.  Investing in community relationships early, prior to beginning exploration drilling, is a key part of Kosmos’ approach in every country where we operate. Our Stakeholder Engagement and Community Development Policy details the standards to which we hold ourselves accountable when interacting with communities. We have published this policy on our website at: www.kosmosenergy. com/responsibility.  In 2015, we conducted a detailed review of our global Social Investment Programs to better understand their impact and align their focus areas with our business. As a result, we enhanced our corporate guidelines regarding program design and project selection criteria to ensure our efforts are sustainable and complementary to local development priorities. The results of this review led to a new approach which we are piloting in 2017 that better aligns with community, government, and company priorities.
