Reconciliation Action Plan
Valmec respectfully acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, both past and present as the Traditional Owners on whose lands we work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water, and community. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging.
Valmec is proud to announce that we had received formal endorsement for our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) by Reconciliation Australia, on 12 November 2020.
An Innovate RAP focuses on developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, developing and piloting innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Valmec is committed to building respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and creating diverse and sustainable opportunities, which underpin the Group's initiatives included within this RAP.
By acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work, the Valmec vision is to collaborate with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, in their desire to create:
• new pathways with strong foundations;
• opportunities for the provision of goods and services;
• education and skills training;
• meaningful avenues for gainful employment.
Our goal is to continue to build relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities by creating new partnerships with Traditional Owner organisations, and through education of our employees. Valmec’s goal is to ensure that our dealings with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are always conducted in a professional and respectful way.
At Valmec, we firmly believe in promoting cultural recognition, mutual respect, acknowledging the past and moving forward together for mutual success.
