We have a commitment to open and transparent communication and recognise our responsibility to contribute positively to society.
We fully recognise the significant and lasting socio-economic benefits our presence in the community can bring and we honour the responsibility that comes with that. For this reason we seek to engage with local suppliers and contractors and actively participate in regional business groups and chambers of commerce.
In addition to providing local employment opportunities, Downer is focused on making a difference through partnerships, sponsorships and donations. We implement a range of strategies focusing on social responsibility, local and indigenous employment, cultural heritage management and stakeholder engagement.
Downer and Spotless are committed to following Reconciliation Australia's Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) framework, which provides a structure for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation. Downer's Innovate RAP, launched in June 2019 for 2019-2021, reaffirms our commitment to the reconciliation process and builds on the Reflect RAP that we introduced in September 2016.
