New Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Policy shares our commitment towards cultural heritage
March 27 2023
Horizon Power continues to positively impact the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, communities and businesses with the release of our first Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Policy.
The policy outlines our commitment to minimising environmental and cultural heritage impact by:
- Integrating risk assessment and due diligence processes into decision making for projects.
- Engaging with key stakeholders on issues in a transparent and timely manner, including working closely with Traditional Owners and Knowledge Holders.
- Investigating all possible options for new assets to ensure impact on Aboriginal cultural heritage is avoided and protected wherever and whenever possible.
Horizon Power CEO Stephanie Unwin says the business already has a strong focus on minimising any environmental and cultural heritage impact.
“This policy formalises what we do every day to ensure we treat the environment and Aboriginal cultural heritage with the utmost respect,” she says.
“Each of the regions we operate in have cultural heritage values specific to a particular area – and so we’ll continue to work with individual Traditional Owner groups to understand and accommodate their requirements.”
The Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Policy aligns with the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2021.Read the policy
Horizon Power acknowledges the Traditional Custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders past, present and emerging.
