Our commitment to First Nations Australians
As an organisation, GPT is committed to creating positive and sustainable change within First Nation’s communities, our industry and the broader Australian society. For GPT, Reconciliation is about empowering and supporting First Nations People in our communities and building stronger relationship between the wider Australian community and First Nations People. Embedded within GPT’s organisational culture is our focus on connecting communities over the shared and varied cultures that make up society. We promote diversity and celebrate all cultures, this enables our assets to operate dynamically and in harmony with the rest of the community.
Reconciliation Action Plan
On the 12 October 2015, GPT launched an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our RAP formalises our commitment to Australia’s First Nations People and aligns with Reconciliation Australia’s three areas of focus: relationships, respect and opportunities.
GPT's RAP outlines the actions, timelines and targets that will measure our success and hold ourselves accountable in improving the lives of the Traditional Owners of the land. Furthermore, the RAP includes a series of actions that aim to foster trust and respect with First Nation’s People.
We acknowledge that our reconciliation journey has just begun and we will seek to draft our next RAP on the learning’s and challenges experienced in the first one. In 2017, we will continue developing genuine and sustainable programs that enable positive outcomes for the lives of First Nation’s People.
Our RAP achievements for 2016 can be found here.
