Support to Indigenous Australians
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Australian land, their unique knowledge systems, and cultures. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
Alignment and Inclusiveness
Equinox has a very comprehensive program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander support and engagement including procurement policies to identify and include Australian Indigenous businesses within bidding activities, to encourage and monitor inclusion of Australian Indigenous’ businesses by sub-contractors. At Equinox we strive for inclusion of Australian Indigenous partners at all levels including early-stage planning, capacity support strategy, and development of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies.
We recognise that each community’s needs are unique. Our team works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to ensure the program addresses the specific needs of each community and can deliver effective support and meaningful results.
Through mutual consultation we seek to maintain ESG policies that enhance alignment with Australian Indigenous values and goals, and drive beneficial outcomes for all parties. We believe ESG policy development should always be inclusive, and are committed to ongoing dialogue with Australian Indigenous partners.
Capacity Support and Consultation
One of the top priorities cited by Australian Indigenous stakeholders is increased capacity support. At Equinox we are committed to processes that generate growth and opportunity for Australian Indigenous communities, partnerships, and individuals. We understand the need for meaningful engagement and growth, and embrace the process of ongoing learning and improvement. At Equinox we embrace processes that enhance Australian Indigenous consultation and capacity support.
