We acknowledge and respect the traditional owners of the places on which we do business, primarily the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We honour their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past present and emerging, who’s knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices.

We are committed to genuinely partnering and meaningfully engaging with the Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities in all places where we do business to support protection of Country, the maintenance of spiritual and cultural practices and to closing the gap. We acknowledge that Aboriginal Australians have never ceded sovereignty, and that we live, work and play on land that is, always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
