BG&E recently selected KULBARDI, a 100 per cent Indigenous-owned and managed enterprise that is certified with Supply Nation, to provide our personal protective equipment (PPE).

Kulbardi helps to create and maintain strategic and sustainable partnerships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous businesses, via the provision of workplace supplies. Their vision expands beyond the reach of ethical supply chain management and into the realms of social and economic development for First Nations communities.

Kulbardi’s community investment model operates via the Bibbulmun Fund, which provides holistic and comprehensive growth for corporate, government and Indigenous Australia.

Some of the broader benefits of procuring workplace supplies from Kulbardi include:

• increased employment prospects for First Nations peoples;
• training and development opportunities for Indigenous youth;
• working with stakeholder groups to improve the life expectancy of Indigenous peoples; and
• furthering reconciliation across our nation.

BG&E proudly acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate and the sites where our projects are planned, designed, and delivered. We honour their ownership of 65,000 years and their continuing connection to culture, community, land, sea, and sky, and we pay our respect to them and their Elders, past and present.
