Acknowledgement of country

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and pay homage to their ancestors who maintained and nurtured the land, sea and waterways for over 60,000 years and recognise their continuing connection to this Country. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders past, present, and emerging. Kent is committed to reconciliation through listening to and sharing the knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

Our commitments

Our path to reconciliation

At Kent, we recognise we have a unique opportunity to support all Australians by contributing more to reconciliation, self-determination, and economic prosperity. We have a growing footprint in Australia and aim to influence reconciliation through First Nations employment & training, procurement, and community engagement.

Our commitment

The RAP programme has four different types of RAPs: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, and Elevate, with each type representing a different stage of an organisation’s reconciliation journey. As we embark on ours, we are currently on the Reflect stage, which is dedicated to building our understanding of Indigenous cultures, histories, and issues. We have committed to several steps, including:

  • Developing a statement of commitment to reconciliation
  • Undertaking an internal review of our current relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Identifying areas where we can improve our cultural awareness and understanding
  • Developing a plan to increase cultural awareness and understanding within Kent
  • Establishing stronger relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

"Our Reconciliation Action Plan represents our commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. By focusing on relationships, respect, and opportunities, we aim to embed these values throughout our day-to-day business activities and beyond, creating a lasting impact on the communities we serve."
Joseph McCormick, Executive Vice President, APAC

Kent RAP artwork

We are proud to showcase the stunning front cover artwork of our RAP, created by Chad Briggs, a talented indigenous artist. The artwork captures the essence of our journey so far as Kent and our strong commitment to reconciliation. The background of the artwork depicts journey lines connecting different groups on the same path, symbolising unity and a common purpose. The four colours represent earth, gas, ocean and wind. The circles are boras, and each has a meaning for Kent:

  • The central bora has our logo and has the pathway leading out to the four other boras
  • The green bora represents the past and is the Aboriginal symbol for "person" and is singular to honour our founder, MF Kent
  • The yellow bora represents our future growth
  • The red bora shows two people facing each other and having a conversation to represent Kent's dialogue with the Indigenous communities
  • The blue bora shows all our employees as one large community
