Working with indigenous communities is a key element of exploration and resources extraction in Queensland
QRC recognises that the resources sector needs to work to develop collaborative partnerships between industry, government and indigenous communities to improve the livelihoods of indigenous people in Queensland.
By applying respect and recognition, resources companies and indigenous people can, and do, work together for mutual benefit.
QRC is committed to developing partnerships between the resources industry, indigenous communities and government, to create sustainable economic development and employment opportunities that will contribute to building strong and sustainable indigenous families and communities in Queensland.
This is demonstrated in tangible ways that result in:
- employment programs
- education and training programs
- business participation and economic development opportunities
- cultural awareness programs
- cultural heritage protection
