The Sydney Motorway Corporation Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is part of our broader strategy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander investment in communities we are working in. It has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and has 58 measurable commitments.
Our aim is to support strong Aboriginal communities through a strategy with four key focus areas:
- Employment: providing opportunities for fulfilling and sustainable jobs
- Education, training and skills: through capacity building across the business
- Culture: identifying opportunities to acknowledge and celebrate Aboriginal cultures and heritage through our projects
- Spend with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses: creating opportunities for economic empowerment by supporting strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.
Our project footprint embraces one of the highest densities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in the nation. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land our project footprint embraces, along with elders past and present.
Our RAP is the framework needed to build relationships, respect and opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians across Australia’s largest transport infrastructure project.
We are committed to leaving a legacy of a society where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are able to participate equally in all life opportunities free from discrimination.
