Tellus Releases Inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan
Tellus is pleased to announce that it has released its inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This RAP provides a reflective framework towards reconciliation and aims to strengthen relationships with the Traditional Owners of the lands in which it operates.
Tellus recognises the unique position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the original custodians of Australia and acknowledges the values in Indigenous heritage, cultures and histories.
“With the release of this inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan, Tellus is proud to join the community of over 1,000 dedicated corporate, government, and not-for-profit organisations that have formally committed to reconciliation through the RAP program since its inception in 2006,” said Duncan van der Merwe, Tellus Managing Director.
“We see our RAP as a great opportunity to improve socio-economic and environmental outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the communities within which we operate.”
This Reflect RAP has been prepared as the initial scoping document toward reconciliation, which sets out the steps Tellus will take to prepare for reconciliation initiatives in successive RAPs. This document recognises that this process will progress through phases to ‘innovate’, ‘stretch’ and ‘elevate’.
Tellus’ RAP has been prepared in line with the guidelines published by Reconciliation Australia.
