Supporting First Nation’s businesses to grow with Supply Nation

The APP Group is proud to announce its new membership with Supply Nation.

1 December 2023

Our membership with Supply Nation reinforces our commitment to supporting local businesses, economic diversity, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses through strategic procurement management.

At The APP Group, we have initiatives designed to help close the gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. These initiatives include:

  • Our Innovate Reconciliation Plan. This provides a framework to help our business achieve our vision for, and commitment to reconciliation under the three RAP pillars of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities.
  • Increasing opportunities for employment, sustained career development and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ businesses to participate in our supply chain.
  • Supporting local Indigenous Communities through our partnership with CareerTrackers to provide pre-professional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university students with paid internships.

We embrace culture and diversity because it makes us stronger and more capable. A broad and welcoming approach to culture and diversity is a fundamental way we can deliver better outcomes for our projects and stakeholders. 

Supply Nation is Australia’s leader in supplier diversity and custodian of the largest database of verified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses – Indigenous Business Direct. Since 2009, Supply Nation has worked to foster connections between Indigenous businesses and procurement teams from government and corporate Australia. 

Supply Nation’s support, combined with a range of business tools and training, helps members incorporate Indigenous businesses into their supply chain, and contribute to the growth and sustainability of the Indigenous business sector.
