EnergyAustralia makes a continued commitment to reconciliation by releasing its 2023-25 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), outlining a series of commitments that bring to life EnergyAustralia’s vision for reconciliation.
EnergyAustralia’s vision looks forward to a united Australia that acknowledges and celebrates First Nations peoples and cultures and working inclusively and collaboratively with Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander peoples to accelerate the clean energy future for all Australians.
The new RAP sets out an aspirational but practical set of commitments over the next two years including:
- Increasing the understanding of First Nations peoples, histories, and cultures among EnergyAustralia employees, contractors, and partners
- Revising and improving the approach to supplier and employment participation to ensure greater supplier diversity and the creation of employment pathways for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people
- Establishing new partnerships and other collaborative opportunities to engage First Nations communities in the clean energy transition
- Voicing support for reconciliation and encouraging our people to participate in reconciliation activities
EnergyAustralia Managing Director, Mark Collette, said the commitments in the new RAP outline the ways EnergyAustralia will play its role in advancing reconciliation.
“With the Federal Government’s intention to hold a referendum on Constitutional recognition for First Nations people, we can also play a role in informing our people with perspectives on reconciliation, so they are well informed about the Voice to Parliament,” Mr Collette said.
