Report Highlights Key Performance Data and Narratives from Kosmos’ Operations Around the World

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 29, 2014-- Kosmos Energy Ltd. (“Kosmos”) (NYSE: KOS) today announced the release of its 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report outlining its non-financial performance and its actions to promote economic, social and environmental sustainability.

“At Kosmos, corporate responsibility is a core part of our strategy for becoming a partner of choice,” said Andrew G. Inglis, Kosmos’ chairman and chief executive officer. “We recognize that we must be as good above ground as we are exploring below it to earn the respect and trust of our host governments, the communities where we operate, and other stakeholders whose lives may be affected by our work.”

Kosmos set an ambitious agenda for its 2013 corporate responsibility program, pledging to strengthen its policy framework, improve governance, and manage human rights. By sharing performance data and real-life examples from Kosmos’ operations around the world, the report highlights the company’s progress in these and other key areas.

Highlighted performance and initiatives throughout 2013 include:

  • Deepening our commitment to protecting human rights by joining the United Nations Global Compact, adopting the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights as a touchstone for measuring performance, and beginning the implementation of the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights;
  • Entering into a Joint Declaration of Principles with the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (“ONHYM”), on behalf of the Government of Morocco, setting out our joint commitments regarding our exploration activities in the Cap Boujdour block offshore Western Sahara and the key principles under which hydrocarbon development would proceed, if any commercially viable deposits are discovered;
  • Introducing and implementing our Business Principles into our day-to-day business operations;
  • Continuing with our social investment program in Cameroon in spite of discontinuing our exploration operations in the country.
