Origin Energy has been piloting initiatives to enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation for sometime. A Foundation, creates support programs that use education to help empower young Australians to reach their potential break the cycle of disadvantage.

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of this land; and we pay our respects to elders past, present and future.

Many of our operations are located in rural and regional areas and involve construction and operation of large-scale infrastructure such as gas processing facilities, pipelines and power stations, as well as smaller scale infrastructure such as coal seam gas wells.

To date, we have engaged Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples predominantly in the communities in which we operate and through the philanthropic activities of our Foundation. Historically, we have not been able to confidently calculate the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people employed at Origin. However, capturing reliable baseline and future numbers will be a priority action in our first RAP.
