Having completed all action items and commitments in this RAP, in 2022, Downer launched its first RAP covering both Downer and Spotless. This has allowed us to align our commitments, programs, initiatives and outcomes.
This RAP reaffirms our commitment to the reconciliation process as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their communities and organisations.
Downer has a proud history in Australia, and we are committed to ensuring we play a role in further empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our latest Innovate RAP will help us to achieve these objectives by enhancing existing relationships and generating new opportunities.
We also acknowledge the special place that Māori hold as Tangata Whenua (people of the land) in New Zealand and are committed to creating an environment that promotes opportunities for Māori. This begins with executive sponsorship, and is reflected in our recruitment messaging, education and awareness strategies.
