Origin Energy has announced its support of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.  

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an invitation to all Australians from First Nations Australians, asking them to help build a better future by supporting the establishment of a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission for the purpose of treaty making and truth-telling. 

Origin CEO Frank Calabria said, “As a leading Australian company, we see opportunities to help achieve a reconciled nation and play a part in stopping the disadvantages currently being experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities.  

“We support the Uluru Statement from the Heart as part of our strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and in addition to the targets in our Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan – across the areas of Indigenous employment, Indigenous recruitment, and cultural learning.” 

Origin acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are the oldest surviving continuous cultures in the world, and is committed to creating a culture of respect and inclusion across all parts of the organisation. 

Origin’s operations are located on the land of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and the company is committed to working constructively, transparently and in good faith in all interactions with Traditional Owners.
