Empowerment is a key Fortescue value and fundamental to our approach of building vibrant and strong communities, within which we provide opportunities for training, education, employment and business development.
Operating in regional Australia places us in the privileged position of being able to empower individuals and effect positive change in some of Australia’s most socio-economically disadvantaged communities, in particular Aboriginal communities.
Our approach has three key elements:
1. Creating opportunities for Aboriginal people
2. Ensuring our business and supply chain is free from all forms of forced labour
3. Building vibrant and sustainable communities
