Infrastructure Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Australia, and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. We pay respect to their continuing connection to land, and the continuation of their cultural, spiritual and educational practices.
Infrastructure Australia is proud to launch our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Launched during National Reconciliation Week 2020, this document is our public commitment to the national reconciliation movement.
Our Reflect RAP was developed in partnership with Reconciliation Australia. It commits us, over the next year, to learning as an organisation, exploring partnerships in our sphere of influence, and enabling our staff to take practical, actionable steps to contribute to reconciliation.
Through this Reflect RAP, we hope to develop our knowledge base and strengthen our advice in areas that impact on quality-of-life outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We will do this by working to establish ourselves as a trusted partner of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We look forward to establishing strong, mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander partners who can help us to innovate and deliver better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
In preparing for the future of our infrastructure, we acknowledge the importance of learning from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' unique history of land management and settlement, art, culture and society that began over 65,000 years ago.
