Reconciliation Action Plan

We've released of our Reconciliation Action Plan, an important blueprint for Frasers Property Australia’s relationship with Indigenous Australians

Today we’re delighted to announce the release of our Reconciliation Action Plan, an important blueprint for Frasers Property Australia’s relationship with Indigenous Australians. Our RAP documents our commitment to authentic engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – as collaborators, in our workforce, and in the communities and properties we develop. 

“As a developer of land and property, we play a key role in designing communities that are inclusive of Indigenous Australians and their interests. Our Reconciliation Action Plan focuses on including local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our design processes and meaningfully engaging Elders and young people in our business operations at every opportunity,” said Rod Fehring, CEO, Frasers Property Australia, at today’s launch in Sydney. 

Our Reconciliation Action Plan contains tangible commitments, including:

  • We will develop a framework for authentic and early engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for all our future projects.
  • We will develop and implement a cultural awareness training strategy for staff which defines cultural learning needs of employees in all areas of our business and considers the various ways cultural learning can be provided. 
  • We will include an Acknowledgement of Country at the commencement of important internal and external events, project milestones and celebrations.
  • We will install plaques with a Recognition Statement and Acknowledgement of Country at all our offices, retail centres, industrial sites, commercial sites and residential sales centres that we own.
  • We will prefer to do business with suppliers, contractors and tenants who have a RAP or similar, for major contracts greater than $10 million.

We thank our RAP External Advisory Council members – John Briggs (Intract Australia Pty Ltd), Morgan Coleman (Morgan Coleman Developments) and Samantha Rich (SJB Architects) – and Reconciliation Australia for their insights and guidance to bring us to this moment.
