Since 2009, Supply Nation has connected Indigenous businesses with the procurement departments of government agencies and corporate Australia.
They are a leader in the global supplier diversity movement that redirects procurement spend to traditionally under-represented businesses where it can create greater social good and give businesses a strong competitive advantage.
Through our membership, we’re able to direct our purchasing to Indigenous-owned and operated businesses, providing positive social and economic benefits to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their families and communities.
We’ve appointed Muru Office Supplies as our office supplies partner.
Muru Office Supplies is one of Australia’s largest workplace supply companies, and they give 15% of profits to Indigenous community initiatives.
Our partnership will significantly bolster funds that Muru can disperse across projects covering a range of areas, including Indigenous education, environment, health and wellbeing. It will also enable Muru to employ at least two new full-time employees from the Indigenous community.
They’re an ideal supply partner for ENGIE across Australia, and the partnership underlines our ongoing commitment to social procurement and creating a diverse and inclusive workplace.
We’re working with Warrgambi, a national services company.
Warrgambi is a Canberra-based, Indigenous owned and operated company that delivers services to the fire detection and electronic security sectors.
They work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth to develop essential skills in the fire and electrical sectors and to enable them to achieve sustainable employment and developmental growth.
They provide mentoring and support services during their development to aid retention and provide a fulfilling and rewarding employment journey.
Warrgambi is a valued supplier to ENGIE Services, and we’re proud to be supporting their important work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth.
ENGIE Australia & New Zealand is partnering with social enterprise YMCA ReBuild to give disadvantaged young people invaluable on-the-job experience.
The partnership, part of ENGIE’s diversity and inclusion strategy, has already seen YMCA ReBuild employees working at ENGIE sites at Hallam and Rialto.
YMCA ReBuild is a social enterprise that trains and employs disadvantaged young people who are at risk of being trapped in a cycle of crime and imprisonment. By supporting, training and employing young ex-offenders, YMCA ReBuild provides young people with a second chance.
