Our Reconciliation Journey
Origin’s engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples has predominantly occurred through our development of energy resources, the Origin Energy Foundation and our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), launched in 2015.
The release of our second RAP continues this important journey for Origin. As a leading energy company, we have engaged with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over many years. Through our Stretch RAP, we are showing our commitment to participating in Australia’s reconciliation efforts and shifting from awareness to action through targeted activity across learning, spending and employment.
For some time, we’ve been working towards building employee cultural awareness, celebrating National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week, building diversity and inclusion through employment practises, creating equality through procurement, and piloting initiatives to enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation.
Getting energy right for our customers, communities and planet. We’re one company, and within us there are thousands of amazing people and a million opportunities to get energy right.
Building on the progress we’ve made, our 2019 – 2020 Reconciliation Action Plan maps out our aspirations along four interconnected paths, both internal and external:
Our ability to make a difference and succeed in our reconciliation efforts depends on us supporting our people as they engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and helping them to develop respectful and mutually beneficial relationships.
We respect the rights and interests of all our stakeholders and the communities in which we operate. We provide opportunities for our people to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures, histories and achievements so that we create a culturally safe and inclusive workplace.
Education, jobs and the purchasing of goods and services from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses create opportunities to transform lives and create a sense of inclusion for all. Through our Stretch RAP, we aim to increase the participation and representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our business.
We’re proud to announce our latest commission, ‘Radiating Country’ by Riki Salam to follow the wonderful ‘Illuminating Country’ artwork, which was created especially for us. It’s the next iteration of the Origin energy story, and one we’re enormously proud of.
This new artwork has been created around the idea of a journey – not just as a business that’s continually evolving, but literally travelling the length and breadth of our beautiful country to share ‘Good energy’ across the nation.
We’re proud to continue our work with Reconciliation Australia in the development and delivery of our second, Stretch RAP.
