Reconciliation Action Plan
Building an inclusive Australia with opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples requires considered action. Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) outlines our commitment to reconciliation and is integrated throughout the business. We engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, community centres, educational facilities and businesses in the regions we work.
One of our RAP goals is to ensure that employees are educated on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History and Cultures so we can implement this knowledge and integrate ethical and culturally aware practices in our work. We have engaged ‘Your Mob Learning’, a 100% Indigenous owned business to provide online foundational cultural awareness training for all Ecosure staff. We hope education will provide everyone with confidence to liaise with local communities, develop relationships and ensure our actions and values align with the goal for true Reconciliation.
Ecosure employ 13 staff that identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, that is 8% of our staff and we aim for more! We are committed to the RAP journey and are excited for the experiences, opportunities and learnings that lie ahead.
Our vision is for all Australians to understand the importance of reconciliation, to unify our society and embrace the diversity of Cultures in this land of many countries.
Ecosure are an environmentally conscious business with the goal to improve the ecosystems of 100 million hectares and 1,000 island worldwide by 2030. With this goal in mind, it makes sense that we focus on sustainability in everything we do, from our technical experts in the field to our support teams in our offices. We are committed to operating sustainably and promoting initiatives that encourage our employees and project partners to achieve the best possible outcomes for the environment. We have implemented a variety of successful sustainability actions across our business including installing solar panels that power our Gold Coast office with renewable energy, responsible recycling and waste reduction, thoughtful procurement, and carbon emission reduction strategies. In recognition of this, Ecosure has been awarded as a Star Partner in the Chamber of Commerce & Industry Queensland EcoBiz program.
To take further action, we offset our carbon emissions from our fleet fuel consumption by supporting Australian community-based and First Nations led carbon sequestration projects. By purchasing carbon credits, we have supported First Nations Owned businesses to deliver projects that focus on social, cultural, environmental, and economic co-benefits for Traditional Owners. These projects provide opportunities for inter-generational learning and Connection to Country, while building capacity and well-being within the community.
We will continue looking for innovative ways to improve the sustainability of our business and our projects so we can keep working towards our vision of thriving global ecosystems.
